Abstract
We demonstrate a spatially distributed measurement technique to observe temperature changes along a pumped Ybdoped fiber. The technique is based on an array of fiber Bragg gratings acting as temperature sensor line. The Bragg gratings are inscribed directly into the actively doped fiber core using high intensity laser pulses and an interferometric setup. We studied the temperature evolution in differently doped fibers under pumping conditions and find different effects contributing to the observed temperature increase. To avoid an additional heating caused by pump-induced photodarkening, we measure the spatially resolved temperature profile during pumping along a photodarkening-reduced, cerium co-doped fiber.
