Paper Abstract

The subject of the research was silicate glasses characterized by properly matched optical, thermal and rheological properties, which would enable their use in manufacturing of multifiber light and image-guide integrated rods aimed for high efficient guiding of VIS and NIR radiation (0, 4 divided by 2 micrometers ). Elaborating a synthesis and laboratory melting method of the low dispersion, high homogeneity colorless multicomponent silicate rod and clad glasses, mandatory components of fiberoptic light guides, as well as a high absorbing extra mural absorption glass, for outside optical insulation layer, has been presented. The manufacturing possibilities of integrated rod-shaped light and image-guiding structures, with high efficiency to transmit a VIS and NIR radiation have been stated. They are mainly used as light conductors in light-cured polymer dentist lamps, in laser devices for biostimulation, therapeutics, cosmetics, and medical treatments, as well as in advanced devices for photon coagulation.
