Abstract

A cw-244-nm-Ar+ laser was used to fabricate Bragg gratings in pristine and H2-loaded Bi-Al-SiO2 optical fibers with index changes as high as 3.6 × 10−4 and 19.3 × 10−4, respectively. For comparison, fiber Bragg gratings in pristine and H2-loaded SMF-28e showed index changes of 13.6 × 10−4 and 63.3 × 10−4. Continuous isochronal thermal annealing revealed higher thermal stability for the H2-loaded Bi-Al-SiO2 fiber compared to the pristine one. The SMF-28e fibers, with and without hydrogen, were more stable than the Bi-Al-SiO2 fibers.
