Abstract
This paper reports the development of high power excimer lasers with enhanced spatial and temporal coherence. These excimer lasers are applicable to writing fiber Bragg gratings by interferometric or phase-mask techniques. An excimer laser with a novel unstable resonator will be analyzed with respect to its suitability to the production of passive fiber optic components and in terms of production flexibility, efficiency, and reliability. A survey of applicability of this tool to short and long period fiber Bragg gratings will be presented.
