Preparation of water-free silica-based optical-fibre waveguide

Payne, D.N. and Gambling, W.A. (1974) Preparation of water-free silica-based optical-fibre waveguide Electronics Letters, 10, (16), pp. 335-337. (doi:10.1049/el:19740265).

Record type: Article


A technique is described, whereby the hydroxyl absorption bands of the new phosphosilicate-core optical-fibre waveguide, which arise from impurities in the cladding, can be largely eliminated. The resulting fibre has ultralow loss over the entire wavelength range 0.4-1.1µm.
