Abstract

We report on a pioneer thermal stability study of polymer optical fiber Bragg gratings (POFBGs) inscribed with a single laser pulse. The POFBG thermal decay follows a typical power-law function, which allowed us to simulate and predict POFBG lifetime for a maximum working temperature of 70 ºC, for a working period up-to 1000 years.
