    Abstract

    The 289 and 255nm outputs of a frequency doubled copper laser are used to remove the polymer jacket of optic fiber and write fiber Bragg gratings respectively. Our studies show that 289nm laser light is ideal for stripping the polymer jacket in a well defined manner without interacting significantly with the core of photosensitive fibers.
