Paper Abstract

A polymer-core/silica-cladding hybrid optical fiber is implemented by filling a capillary with UV-curable epoxy and a following UV-laser scanning exposure. A fiber Bragg grating is successfully inscribed in parallel using a phase mask. The experimental results show a reduced thermal response for the FBG and a theoretical analysis for such a hybrid optical fiber is performed which corroborates existing of a turning temperature for minimized thermal response.
