Bragg gratings in Ce3+-doped fibres written by a single excimer pulse

Gratings with up to 2.4% reflection have been demonstrated in Ce3+-doped fibres, written by a single excimer pulse at 248nm, for the first time. The grating strength is shown to be related to Ce3+ concentration. Part of the grating was found to be stable for more than 10 hours at 600°C.
