Fluorine doping In the VAD sintering process

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Fluorine is an attractive dopant for silica based optical fibers because it reduces the refractive index of silica glass without any additional loss as opposed to a boron dopant.1 A typical example of the fluorine-doped fiber Is a depressed cladding single-mode fiber. The fiber was fabricated by a direct flame hydrolysis of SiCl4 in the presence of fluorine containing dopant in the VAD method. The maximum depression of the refractive index [Δn(F)] was −0.22%.2
