Abstract

We report a fabrication technique for chirped fiber Bragg gratings (CFBGs) using a flexible setup based on a poly(methyl-methacrylate) phase mask. The period of the phase mask can be thermally tuned during the inscription process, allowing the grating period of uniform fiber Bragg gratings to be shifted about 7nm by a temperature change of 74K. In addition, CFBGs with bandwidths up to 2nm are demonstrated in nonphotosensitive fibers by IR femtosecond inscription.
