A study of UV absorption in germanosilicate fibre preforms

Dong, L., Pinkstone, J., Russell, P.St.J. and Payne, D.N. (1994) A study of UV absorption in germanosilicate fibre preforms At CLEO '94: Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics, United States. 08 - 12 May 1994.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The strength of the 242 nm absorption band in MCVD germanosilicate fibre preforms is observed a) to be linearly dependent on Ge concentration and b) to increase by a factor of ~2.5 if O2 is replaced with He during the collapse process. It also reduces when the preform is co-doped with phosphorus, fluorine, aluminium and boron.
