Paper Abstract

Graded-index and single-mode fibers can be prepared by a low pressure plasma-impulse-CVD process. During the short plasma pulses, generated by pulsed microwaves, layers of mono molecular thickness are deposited onto the inner side of a quartz-glass tube. Thus a fine profiling of the refractive index distribution is possible and fibers drawn from these preforms are of high quality.
