This paper reviews the present status of methods for the experimental characterization of UV sensitivity of waveguide materials, of UV-written or UV-modified waveguides, of Bragg-gratings and long-period gratings and of grating devices. Methods for the measurement of UV-induced waveguide losses and of birefringence are also discussed.
