Abstract

Controlled postdevelopment heat treatment of the photoresist polymer used in the preparation of holographic gratings has been shown to enhance the diffraction efficiency of gratings and reduce the scattering losses. We prove this effect by analyzing the resonant reflection spectra of a waveguide grating and observing the reduction in the arc-shaped light scattering associated with the excitation of waveguide modes.
