Fabrication of special optical fibres.
8th General Conference of the European Physical Society, Amsterdam, NL,
04 - 08 Sep 1990.
Techniques for the manufacture of silica based single or multi-moded optical fibres are well established and optical communications networks commonplace. Two fabrication methods are commonly employed, the modified chemical vapour deposition (MCVD) and vapour axial deposition (VAD) processes. However, interest in silica fibres for other applications, such as sensing and active fibre based devices requires novel production techniques
