Abstract

We present a simple, cost-effective method for creating diffractive optical elements on the surfaces of optical fibers and fiber-optic components by use of 193-nm ablation techniques. It is an outgrowth of a more fundamental investigation of the effects of intense UV radiation fields on SiO2- and Ge–SiO2-based structures (specifically optical fibers and preforms) and allows the inexpensive fabrication of structures such as the suggested evanescent-field-based sensing device.
