Abstract
The residual stresses caused by photo-induced densification inside an optical fiber Bragg grating are evaluated using Finite Element Analysis (FEA). Experimental data obtained on preforms and reported in open literature are used in the computer model to calculate the residual stress levels and their spatial distribution. The results provide some insights into the cause of the strength degradation occurring during Bragg grating fabrication process.
