Description/Abstract

Measurements of the angular distribution of light scattering in samples of optical quality glass and in cladded glass fibres have been made and the total scattering loss over the wavelength range 0.5-1.0µm has been obtained. The scattering shows a Rayleigh distribution indicating that (a) in similar samples the scattering loss can be inferred from a single measurement of the Rayleigh ratio at an angle of 90° to the incident beam and (b) no large inhomogeneities are introduced during the fibre-drawing process.
