Abstract
We demonstrate Bragg grating inscription in commercial CYTOP POF at a wavelength of 600 nm using a 248 nm krypton fluoride (KrF) excimer laser system with a repetition rate of 40 Hz and pulse energy of 0.60±0.02 mJ during 60 min. Experimental characterization of the Bragg grating is performed under different conditions, where the temperature and strain sensitivities were accurately measured to define potential sensing and optical communication applications.
