Abstract

An ArF excimer laser was used to fabricate Bragg gratings in fibers with Bi-SiO2 core and microstructured or F-doped claddings without fiber presensitization. Average and modulated refractive index changes of 2.7 × 10−4 and 1.0 × 10−4 were induced in pristine microstructured fiber while 1.0 × 10−4 and 0.7 × 10−4 were observed in the F-doped-cladding fiber. Fiber luminescence was also measured under 1064 nm pumping for both fibers. Photosensitivity and luminescence were compared to a Bi-Al2O3-SiO2 core optical fiber.
