Using a KrF excimer laser operating at 248 nm. we have demonstrated that fibre gratings having essentially 100% reflectivity can be manufactured using a single 20 ns pulse. In the course of studying the dynamics of the grating formation process. it was found that transient optical gains of as much as 8 dB/cm could be obtained in germanosilicate fibre. The first distributed feedback (DFB) fibre laser has been made using this mechanism
