The growth dynamics of UV induced IR absorption and related refractive index change in hydrogen loaded GeO2-doped fibers have been studied. We report a higher initial rate and strong saturation for Ge–OH generation compared with Si–OH formation under UV exposure. A close correlation was found between the Ge/Si–OH groups concentration and the induced index change as a function of the UV exposure time. © 1998 American Institute of Physics.
