For the first time, mechanism studies on the formation of polymer optical fiber (POF) gratings are carried out. Our research shows the distinctive low and high index modulation regimes in the growth dynamics of POF Bragg gratings categorized as type I and type II gratings, which are much alike those in silica fibre grating. In addition, optical spectra and formation mechanism for type I and type II POF gratings are revealed.
