Laser annealing of amorphous silicon core optical fibers

Healy, N., Mailis, S., Day, T.D., Sazio, P.J.A., Badding, J.V. and Peacock, A.C. (2012) Laser annealing of amorphous silicon core optical fibers At SOF2012: Advanced Photonics Congress 2012, United States. 17 - 21 Jun 2012. (doi:10.1364/SOF.2012.STu1D.1).

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Laser annealing of an optical fiber with an amorphous silicon core is demonstrated. The annealing process produces a fiber that has a highly crystalline core, whilst reducing the optical transmission losses by ~3 orders of magnitude.
