Paper Abstract

Single crystal fibers of four refractory oxide materials (Aℓ203 , Cr:AZ203 , Nd:YAG and LiNb03) have been grown by a miniature pedestal growth technique. The growth apparatus employs novel electronic control, mechanical and optical systems enabling growth of high optical quality fibers. All four materials exhibit similar growth characteristics and yield fibers of comparable quality. Measured optical waveguide losses at 632.8 nm for a 5 cm long 170 μm diameter CrℓAZ203 fiber were 0.04 dB/cm.
