Photorefractive gratings in optical fibres

Archambault, J.L., Reekie, L. and Russell, P.St.J. (1992) Photorefractive gratings in optical fibres At IOP Meeting on Miniature and Waveguide Solid State Lasers, United Kingdom.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Photorefractive fibre gratings are finding increasing use as quasi-distributed fibre strain and temperature sensors, filters in doped fibre amplifiers and narrowband feedback elements in tunable and single-frequency fibre lasers. These gratings can be fabricated routinely in a matter of minutes by exposing the core of a single-mode fibre to the interference pattern formed between two intersecting UV laser beams, and reflectivities in excess of 99% are now possible using this technique
