Paper Abstract

The influence of the fluorine-containing precursor type in the MCVD process on the size of soot particles is investigated by the method of laser ultramicroscope. The results of these measurements have shown that Freon-113 decreases the content of large soot particles, while SiF4 does not. These results suggest an explanation of the optical loss reduction in highly GeO2- or P2O5- doped single-mode fibers due to co-doping of the fiber core with fluorine.
