Abstract

In this paper, experimental evidence is provided for an enhanced thermal sensitivity for a double thermal regeneration feature in fiber Bragg gratings fabricated by direct ultraviolet writing. 47 gratings of varying fluence and wavelength were written along a double clad, germanium doped core fiber. Subsequently thermal processing without hydrogen loading the fiber was made and thermal treatment was done in a pure oxygen environment. Thermal sensitivity for the double regeneration increased from 13.6 ± 0.3 pm/°C to 21.3 ± 0.2 pm/°C. Furthermore, one of the highest nominal fluence gratings, #45, exhibited a regeneration factor of 1.73.
