Abstract : The objective of this contract was to develop fiber-optic Bragg filters with improved scattering efficiencies for application in optical telecommunications and multiport fiber optic data transfer links. To achieve this objective, a basis of understanding for the physical mechanisms that drive grating formation in oxide glass was developed to identify glass compositions with improved scattering efficiencies.
