Abstract

 

The article presents the results of fiber Bragg gratings writing in birefringent optical fibers with enhanced photorefractive feature by a single 20 ns pulse of KrF excimer laser (248 nm wavelength). Fiber Bragg gratings in birefringent optical fiber with elliptical stress cladding with reflection more than 10% and spectral width at half maximum ~ 0.1 nm were obtained. Beat length and the effective refractive index for each of the selected axes of a birefringent fiber were calculated based on experimentally obtained data.


Keywords: fiber Bragg grating, birefringence, photorefractive feature, phase mask, excimer laser.
