Description/Abstract

Viscosities of two kinds of halide melts were measured at temperatures near the glass transition and above the melting point. The melts and glasses investigated were two fluoroaluminate glasses, a cadmium mixed halide and a cadmium halide phosphate glasses, and a gallium-indium fluoride glass. The fluoroaluminate glasses were designed as core and cladding for a Nd-doped 1.3µm fibre amplifier, while the cadmium halide and cadmium phosphate glasses, were designed as core and cladding for the Pr-doped 1.3µm fibre amplifier. The gallium fluoride glass was also designed as host for the Pr-doped amplifier. The cadmium mixed halide glass exhibits a strong non-Newtonian behaviour contrasting with near-Newtonian fluoroaluminate melts. The implications of these results on fibre drawing and low-loss fibre fabrication are discussed. Viscosity data were fitted to models, and the nappropriateness of the fits is discussed.
