A negative thermal expansion ceramic substrate and an athermal fiber Bragg grating component with the substrate were subjected to reliability tests. We confirmed that the component has adequate durability for use as optical filters in the WDM system, under test conditions of damp heat, low temperature, mechanical shock and vibration. (50 words)
