Grating formation in pure silica-core fibers
2002 (English)In: Optics Letters, ISSN 0146-9592, E-ISSN 1539-4794, Vol. 27, no 10, 809-811 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Strong grating formation in pure silica-core fibers by use of 193-nm ArF-laser radiation is reported. Unsaturated refractive-index changes of Deltan similar to 0.3 X 10(-3) were observed in nontreated fiber, and changes of Deltan similar to 0.5 X 10(-3) were observed in fibers with a high hydroxyl concentration. Possible mechanisms of photosensitivity in pure silica-core fibers are discussed.
