The ability to write a fiber grating through standard fiber coating at a wavelength of 248 nm was demonstrated. The ability to write through the fiber coating is most useful since it will significantly simplify the grating writing process, particularly for long arrays of gratings as required for fiber sensors. At the same time the longer possible writing time will allow more complicated grating structures to be written. This is important for WDM devices and some sensor applications.
