Paper Abstract

Optical fibers with broadband transmission from the UV through the IR have not been available because the silica core material either has OH absorption bands in the IR or UV absorption due to intrinsic structural defects or chlorine. We have developed a new silica core material which can be fabricated into an optical fiber with very good transmission characteristics from 350 nm to 2000 nm. The transmission performance is stable with time because the fiber is not doped with hydrogen.
