Abstract

The inscription of Bragg gratings in chalcogenide ( As 2 Se 3 ) wires with subwavelength diameter is proposed and demonstrated. A modified transverse holographic method employing He–Ne laser light at a wavelength of λ w = 633 nm allows the writing of Bragg grating reflectors in the 1550 nm band. The gratings reach an extinction ratio of 40 dB in transmission and a negative photo-induced index change of Δ n 10 2 . The inscription of Bragg gratings in chalcogenide microwires will enable the fabrication of new devices with applications in nonlinear optics and sensing in the near- to mid-IR region of wavelengths.
