Paper Abstract

We present a manufacturing method that produces azimuthally symmetric long period fibre gratings using a TEM01*-mode CO2 laser. The outlay and optimization of the optical system are introduced, and the long period fibre grating fabrication method is outlined. We also investigated the polarization properties of the fabricated long period fibre gratings to determine the quality of the grating structures.
