Paper Abstract

This work contains results of experimental work on elaboration of hybrid method of telecommunication optical fibre production. Two series of single-mode fibres with different cut-off wavelengths were produced by means of MCVD method. Their spectral attenuation was measured and loss carried in by OH groups was determined. When the fibre was produced, times and temperatures of diffusion of water towards the core of fibre were measured. On this basis calculation of mutual interaction of diffusion profiles and distributions of fields was done. Results of calculation and measurement of loss carried in by OH groups were compared.
