Paper Abstract

The impressing growth of Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) transmissions has pushed the development of photo-induced Bragg gratings in optical fibers. Numerous studies on the photosensitivity of germanosilicate fibers have then been carried out since its discovery in 1978, to understand, stabilize and enhance the effect. Some of those studies are presented here together with some illustrating applications.
