Abstract

The thermal stability of Type I gratings is increased by postthermal tuning of the grating. Optimization of the procedure leads to gratings that can withstand temperatures as high as 600 ° C . Aging tests lead to lifetime predictions as high as 25  years with < 3 dB reduction at 400 ° C . Single exponential relaxation is observed. Above 800 ° C regeneration is obtained.
