Paper Abstract

"Optimization of fiber parameters" usually implies that the numerical aperture, the core/clad ratio, or the core profile is modified for the application of interest. While this is generally true, the accompanying assumption is that the materials being used have already been optimized. In this paper, the opposite tack is taken (i.e., the materials have been neither identified nor optimized). The choice of starting materials is critical, and usually understated. Because the proper choice of starting material should include consideration of the mechanical and optical properties, as well as other physical properties, the particular application should require only additional fine tuning.
