Abstract
A simple method of fabricating long-period fiber gratings, by performing an electric discharge to optical fiber, is presented. Standard single mode fiber is used without hydrogen loading. Grating filters present competitive characteristics, very low insertion loss and high dynamic rejections. We have performed high temperature characterizations of realized gratings in the range 30 - 1200 degree(s)C. Resonance wavelength shifts behavior and grating stability at several annealing cycles have been investigated. The temperature sensitivity are in good agreement with recent published works. Irreversible evolution of the peak shifts is to be emphasized.
