Paper Abstract

We present the temperature response of a mechanically-induced long-period fiber grating (MLPFG) made in photonic crystal fiber (PCF) with and without the coating polymer. In both cases, we found a wavelength shift to shorter wavelengths and a critical decrease of the attenuation peaks. A maximum wavelength shift of 6 nm at 1060 nm was obtained when the temperature changed from 20 to 80 °C in PCF without the polymer. Whereas, the depth of the attenuation peaks were dramatically reduced from 12 to almost 2 dB at 1060 nm when the temperature increase from 20 to 100 °C in both experiments. These results are important to consider when MLPFG are applied in a medium with room temperature variation.
