In this paper we present results of research on fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) fabricated on hydrogen-loaded fibers using scanning phase mask method. The influence of temperature on Bragg wavelength, reflectivity and FWHM for various exposure time and hydrogenation time was investigated. We also have carried out aging tests of fiber Bragg gratings using climatic chamber. Results of these tests can be useful for optimization of FBGs fabrication. We have estimated of fiber Bragg gratings usability as wavelength standards for calibration of fiber optics devices especially optical spectrum analyzers (OSA).
