Description/Abstract

A description is given of a resistance-heated furnace suitable for drawing silica-based optical fibers with a high degree of precision. The furnace is compact, heats from cold to its operating temperature of 2000°C in 3 min and has a power consumption of only 1.4kW. During a fiber pull, the temperature fluctuation is < 0.1°C.
