Dobb, H., Carroll, K., Kalli, K., Komodromos, M., Themistos, C., Peng, G.D., Argyros, A., Large, M.C.J., van Eijkelenborg, M.A., Arresy, M. and Kukureka, S. (2006). Reliability of fibre Bragg gratings in polymer optical fibre. IN: Reliability of optical fiber components, devices, systems, and networks III. Limberger, Hans G. and Mattewson, M. John (eds) SPIE proceedings . SPIE.


In this paper we report on investigations of some of the factors that have a bearing on the reliability and repeatability of polymer fibre Bragg gratings. The main issues discussed are the fibre preform composition, the fibre drawing conditions and the thermal history of the fibre grating.
