Sn-doped silicate fibers exhibit extremely high photosensitivity when exposed to 248 nm KrF excimer laser. Electron micrograph probing has shown that nanoscale phase separation occurs in fibers and fiber preforms after UV exposure.

Abstract

Sn-doped silicate fibers exhibit extremely high photosensitivity when exposed to 248 nm KrF excimer laser. Electron micrograph probing has shown that nanoscale phase separation occurs in fibers and fiber preforms after UV exposure. This phenomenon has been observed only in SnO codoped glasses are the first optical fibers to exhibit phase separation.
