Abstract

The fabrication of Bragg reflectors in fluorine depressed cladding silicate glass and SMF-28 fibers by employing a double-phase mask interferometer and 248 nm , 500 fs laser radiation is demonstrated here. The maximum refractive index changes obtained were of the order of 6 × 10 4 for pulse intensities of 220 GW cm 2 and accumulated energy densities of 3.5 kJ cm 2 . The Bragg gratings fabricated in the F-doped fiber endured temperatures greater than 700°C, while those inscribed in the standard telecom fiber demarcated at 900°C. The experimental results presented depict that the combination of the two phase mask interferometer and the 248 nm photon at sub- TW cm 2 intensities constitute an efficient route in the fabrication of Bragg gratings in low-defect silicate glass optical fibers.
