Polymer fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) with 28-dB transmission rejection and a line width less than 0.5 nm has been achieved for the first time. This result is achieved based on the systematic investigation of growth dynamics of polymer FBGs. We have observed that the growth of polymer FBGs bears some similarities to that of silica FBGs. This work links the mechanism of polymer fiber gratings formation to silica fiber grating and helps to gain better understanding of polymer fiber grating formation process.
