Abstract

We propose a solution doping method for polycarbonate (PC) and TOPAS polymer optical fibre (POF) canes using different UV photosensitive dopants aiming to reduce the fibre Bragg grating inscription time at the typical Bragg grating inscription wavelength (325nm). Three-ring solid-core PC mPOF canes and hollow-core TOPAS canes were doped with a solution of dopants in acetone/methanol and hexane/methanol,
respectively. Doping time, solvent mixture concentration and doping temperature were optimised. A long and stepwise drying process was applied to the doped canes to ensure complete solvent removal. This is required to avoid the formation of any bubbles during the fibre drawing process.
