Abstract

We discuss the analytical expressions that describe the displacement field resulting from the inscription of a Bragg grating in a Ge-doped optical fiber. The equations stem from a phenomenological approach and allow calculation of the induced stresses. Our model provides an efficient tool to analyze the effects of radiation-induced density variations on the properties of fiber Bragg gratings.
