Dong, L., Cruz, J.L., Reekie, L., Xu, M.G. and Payne, D.N. (1995) Enhanced photosensitivity in tin-codoped germanosilicate optical fibres IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, 7, (9), pp. 1048-1050. (doi:10.1109/68.414699).

Record type: Article


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.
