Paper Abstract

At first, the paper carries on the stable state thermal analysis to the temperature field distribution of the drawing furnace, then, a rod-in-tube technique is described here to the fabrication of tellurite glass fiber. There are some equipments needed, which are designed according to the dimension of the fiber required. The different combinations of these equipment could meet the various requirements, such as the rotating equipment and drawing furnace under vacuum controlling, for the aim of fiber fabrication with high diameter ratio of cladding to core (DRCC) for single-mode optical fibers.
