Abstract

We demonstrate, for the first time, an inscription and wet dissolution study of Bragg gratings in a bioresorbable calcium-phosphate glass optical fiber. Bragg gratings, with average refractive index changes of 5.8 × 10^−4, were inscribed using 193 nm excimer laser radiation. Results on the dissolution of the irradiated fiber in simulated physiological conditions are presented after immersing a tilted Bragg grating in a phosphate buffered saline solution for 56 h; selective chemical etching effects are also reported. The investigations performed pave the way toward the use of such phosphate glass fiber Bragg gratings for the development of soluble photonic sensing probes for the efficient in vivo monitoring of vital mechanical or chemical parameters.
