Abstract
The idea of fabricating fiber Bragg gratings during the drawing process of an optical fiber dates back almost 20 years. The application of a transverse holographic writing method on a fiber draw tower offers a promising solution for a highly effective Bragg grating production. Because of the high technology requirements it took more than 10 years to develop the method into a reliable process. The improvements in the technical development during the last five years enable today a cost efficient industrial production of draw tower grating (DTG®) arrays. In this paper we report about new possibilities of the improved process with respect to the grating type (type I gratings, type II gratings), the coating type (2ORMOCER®, metals) and the fiber diameter (125μm, 80μm and below). Furthermore, we present an example for the application of draw tower fiber Bragg gratings in sensing technologies for medical applications.
