Paper Abstract

Using chirped phase mask to fabricate chirped fiber Bragg gratings (CFBG) is a very important method. In this paper, a linearly chirped phase mask with the period of 1000nm in the center, ruled area 100×10mm2 and 1nm/mm chirp rate has been fabricated by a new technique, which combines holographic-ion beam etching and reactive ion beam etching. This involves two main steps: formation of a grating mask by holographic interference exposure and development, and transferring it into the substrate to form a permanent phase mask by both ion beam etching and reactive ion beam etching. Experimental measurements show that the zero order diffraction efficiency is less than 2% and the plus and minus first-order diffraction efficiency is more than 35%; the nonlinear coefficient is 1.6%. Theoretical analysis also indicates that these phase masks can be used to fabricate the UV written CFBG.
