The ability to create stable holographic grating is an important part of the production of many telecommunication products. The stability problem is increased by the need to use ultra-violet light for close fringe spacing and long exposure times on phot-resist - a relatively low sensitivity material. Active fringe locking increases the modulation depth and efficiency of these holographic gratings. A discussion of how fringe lockers work and how they can be incorporated into a manufacturing set-up is followed by results of using fringe lockers in the manufacturing of some telecommunication devices.
