Paper Abstract

In this paper we will discuss the influence of atmosphere pressure microwave plasma on the background loss and the radial distribution of several dopants in specialty, especially rare-earth (RE) doped, preforms and fibers for high power application. In conclusion we were able to demonstrate a significant improvement in the homogeneity of the distribution of the codopants within the silica matrix. Furthermore, we used the plasma process for the functionalization of pure and doped particles as basic raw material in the powder-based reactive powder sintering of silica (REPUSIL) process. In further experiments we will use plasma technology for the all-in-one doping of both active and passive dopants for a brightness adjustment of the refractive index of specialty fibers.
