Preparation of single-mode and multimode graded-index fluoride-glass optical fibers using a reactive vapor transport process

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


A halide vapor-phase approach, termed reactive vapor transport (RVT) processing, has been developed for preparation of mid-IR transmitting fluoride-glass optical fibers. The novel technique has allowed for the first time the fabrication of both monomode and multimode graded-index fluoride- glass fibers, minimized fiber scattering from structural imperfections, reduced OH levels in the core glass, and prevented contamination from dirt particles as well as absorbing impurities during processing.
