Modeling the fabrication of hollow fibres: capillary drawing

Fitt, A.D., Furusawa, K., Monro, T.M. and Please, C.P. (2001) Modeling the fabrication of hollow fibres: capillary drawing Journal of Lightwave Technology, 19, (12), pp. 1924-1931. (doi:10.1109/50.971686).

Record type: Article


A method for modeling the fabrication of small-scale hollow glass capillaries is developed. The model is based on an asymptotic analysis of the Navier-Stokes equations, which yields a simple closed-form solution for this problem. We demonstrate the validity of this approach using experimental data and use it to make predictions for a range of regimes of interest for the development of microstructured optical fiber technology.
