Paper Abstract

Although mainstream grating writing, more often than not using single photon excitation of germanosilicate based defects with CW 244nm light, remains the key technology for complex devices it is now being complemented by a whole host of processes which can enhance and tailor the properties of both conventional and not-so-conventional fibre Bragg gratings. Further, processes for writing in non-germanosilicate based gratings have also continued to develop and include multi-photon excitation directly into the band edge of the glass. It is now possible to custom tailor a gratings property based on the application and the nature of production as well as custom tailor the grating writing process to suit the type of fibre and application.
