Paper Abstract

Plots of intrinsic scattering and absorption coefficients, the so-called V curves, are compiled for 18 crystalline materials. Extrinsic scattering coefficients are evaluated for voids, inclusions, surface imperfections, dislocations, strains and anisotropic grains. Reduction of this extrinsic scattering is a major problem that must be solved in order to attain low-attenuation (10-2dB/km) fibers.
