Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A 1.2X500µm slot was engraved across a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) using femtosecond laser patterning and chemical etching. liquid core FBGs were constructed and their sensitivity to refractive index of up to 10-6/pm was measured.
