Paper Abstract

The compositional dependences of glass formation, thermal properties and optical properties are investigated for TeO2-ZnO-Na2O-P2O5 system for hybrid microstructured optical fibers. The refractive indexes at 1.55 μm and glass transition temperature vary in a wide range from 1.513 to 2.036 and from 265°C to 376°C by controlling of the TeO2/P2O5 and ZnO/Na2O content, respectively. These properties endow tellurite-phosphate glasses with large freedom in the hybrid microstructured optical fiber design. The structures of glasses are investigated by Raman spectra to understand the structural dependence on composition. Using the present glasses, some microstructured optical hybrid fibers with particular dispersion profiles are designed and demonstrated.
