Abstract

In this Letter, we report the fast growth of high quality uniform Bragg gratings in trans-4-stilbenemethanol (TS)-doped poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) step-index optical fibers. Grating manufacturing was obtained using a 400 nm femtosecond pulsed laser and a 1060-nm-period uniform phase mask. For 20 mW mean laser beam power, the grating reflectivity reaches 98% in 60  s.
