We report the fabrication and characteristics of surface relief grating on the end surface of silica optical fiber with a diameter of 125 μm. One- and two-dimensional gratings were inscribed on the fiber surface covered with azo polymer thin-film layer using interferometric methods. Diffraction beam patterns of the zeroth and the first order due to surface relief gratings were observed using a 635 nm laser, and the relation between the measured diffraction beam pattern and the grating period was also investigated. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
