Abstract
Using a KrF excimer laser operating at (lambda) equals 248 nm, we have demonstrated that fiber gratings having essentially 100% reflectivity can be manufactured using a single 20 ns pulse. In the course of studying the dynamics of the grating formation process, it was found that transient optical gains of as much as 8 dB/cm could be obtained in germanosilicate fiber. The first distributed feedback fiber laser has been made using this mechanism.
