Abstract

It is known that optical fiber long period gratings (LPGs) exhibit their highest sensitivity to environmental perturbation when the period is such that the phase matching condition is satisfied at its turning point. The reproducible fabrication of LPGs with parameters satisfying this condition requires high resolution control over the properties of the grating. The performance of an LPG fabrication system based on the point-by-point UV exposure approach is analyzed in this paper, and the control of factors influencing reproducibility, including period, duty cycle, and the environment in which the device is fabricated, is explored.
