A widely tunable and room-temperature operationable loss filter based on a long-period fibre grating (LPFG) fabricated in a B/Ge codoped fibre is reported. The filter exhibits extremely high temperature sensitivity. A maximum spectral shift of –48.1 nm from 10 to 40°C is achieved, corresponding to a thermal tuning efficiency of 1.6 nm/°C. This value is increased by more than one order of magnitude compared with the LPFGs fabricated in standard telecom fibre, and even twice that of a LPFG with sensitivity enhanced by a special polymer.
