Paper Abstract

This paper analyzes all factors affecting the transmittance of compound glass optical fibers. By studying pre-treatment of raw materials, optical structure design of compound glass fibers, glass level control and temperature field control of the double crucible, a proper production process and all parameters to be controlled for making compound glass optical fibers have been established. Finally, the optical transmittance of optical fibers made by the established process has shown about 10% increase.
