Long-period fiber gratings (LPGs) using a high-silica core fiber are presented. A high-silica core fiber has a residual stress in the core, and the grating structure is formed by stress releasing of the core using a focused CO2 laser beam. The dependence of the transmission spectrum on temperature and tensile strength is measured, and low dependence compared with conventional LPGs is observed. These unique characteristics are caused by the difference of temperature and tensile strength changes of the effective indices for the fundamental propagation mode and the cladding mode in the high-silica core fiber.
