Abstract

Permanent grating patterns have been written directly in lead–tin-fluorophosphate glasses by use of UV radiation. The effect of photorefraction is studied in different tin-fluorophosphate compositions. Recorded gratings are found to be volume rather than surface elements. The induced index changes are comparable with those seen in GeO2SiO2 glasses.
