Paper Abstract

A quasi-continuous process for production of large core low-loss step index all-silica fibers has been developed by combining axial plasma deposition and lateral plasma deposition. Named A.L.P.D. (Axial Lateral Plasma Deposition) this process allows industrial production of 2 db/km fibers (0,85 micron) which is almost equivalent to loss limit of silica fibers estimated from the characteristics of intrinsic infrared absorption and Rayleigh Scattering losses. Furthermore thanks to pure fused silica core these fibers show an excellent radiation hardness and high power throughput capability.
