Abstract

Accelerated aging of gratings written in UV presensitized hydrogen outdiffused optical fibers show that these gratings are more stable than standard gratings written in hydrogen-loaded fibers. They are observed to grow initially by as much as 2%. The predicted decay after 25 years at 80 °C is ∼0.1% . The results suggest that the index modulation decay is so slow that postfabrication annealing can be avoided.
