Enhanced photosensitivity is found in Tin-codoped germanosilicate optical fibers. A photo-induced refractive index change (~1.4 x 10^-3 times larger than that observed in pure germanosilicate fibers has been demonstrated. Unlike the technique of using Boron-codoping to enhance the photosensitivity of germanosilicate fibers, Tin-doping does not have a significant effect on fiber loss at the important telecommunication window of 1.55µm. High temperature stability of the gratings in Tin-codoped germanosilicate fibers is also much over Boron-codoped fibers.
