Fiber Bragg Gratings with reflectivity up to 25 dB have been photo-written in the core of a 2D all-solid Photonic Bandgap Fiber without modification of the guiding properties of the fiber. This result is obtained by combining an appropriate glass composition for the high index inclusions constituting the micro-structured cladding and a photosensitive low index core. Couplings of the fundamental core guided mode with cladding modes are investigated and compared to theoretical predictions.
