Paper Abstract

We report on the study of adding metal dopants in chalcogenide glasses to enhance the photosensitivity of the fiber core versus cladding compositions, with goal to enable high reflectivity gratings in infrared-transmitting fibers. Results for the optical and thermal properties of these glasses will be presented, as well as for gratings formation in the glasses using various writing wavelengths for the different doped compositions.
