Paper Abstract

Optical fibres have been developed to a high degree of sophistication for applications in long-distance transmission. Silica-based fibres have attenuations close to the theoretical minimum at wavelengths of 0.85μm, 1.3μm and 1.55μm, while the bandwidth of single-mode fibres can, for all practical purposes, be made almost infinite at wavelengths greater than 1.3μm. Attention is now being given to the design of new types of fibre for application as active and passive fibre components, as sensors and in other new types of optical circuit element.
