Abstract
We reported a Bragg grating inscribed in gold-coated fiber (FBG) by NIR femtosecond laser (fs) for space application. Gold coating can shield the FBG from ultraviolet radiation and oxygen atom erosion. Cryogenic test, high temperature test, and gamma irradiation test were carried out. The reflectivity of the H2-free FBG remained stable at ± 120 °C for 100 h or with 50.4 krad γ irradiation, and the central wavelength shifted within 5 pm and 1.6 pm respectively. Regeneration of the fs-FBG was observed in case the FBG was annealed at 800 °C for 5 h, and the remained 5% in reflectivity after 19 h. Such fs-FBGs inscribed in gold-coated fiber could be employed as high performance fiber sensors for space application.
