Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


UV-reduced birefringence in germanosilicate optical fibres loaded with hydrogen is annealed out at low temperatures (125o C). Annealing for induced birefringence in gratings written by either s or p polarised UV light are identical. The results are incosistent with previous models for the origin of the birefringence.
