This paper reports that reversible changes in the reflectivity of Bragg gratings could be induced by a change in the temperature of the grating (77 K < T < 573 K). The changes proved to be larger in highly doped Ge fibers than in standard fibers, whereas they could hardly be detected in hydrogenated fibers. The sign of the change for type I gratings was opposite to that for type IIA gratings. The changes are likely due to a temperature-induced increase (or a decrease) in the amplitude of the refractive index modulation. Possible mechanisms of these changes in modulation are discussed. Interestingly for the purpose of correcting data of isothermal accelerated aging experiments, a numerical relation that accounts for the temperature-induced changes in type I grating reflectivity is given .
