Paper Abstract

Research in the Laboratory for Lightwave Technology is focused on novel applications of specially designed optical fibers. Emphasis is placed on new techniques of dopant incorporation, using both MCVD (Modified Chemical Vapor Deposition) and OVD (Outside Vapor Deposition) to fabricate fibers that are primarily for non-telecommunications applications. The topics pursued are fibers for fiber lasers, nonlinear effects in fibers, in particular, second harmonic generation, fiber devices for the measurement of electric field, new techniques for the fabrication of bulk-glass gradient index lenses, fiber designs for embedded fibers for sensor elements of future "smart skin" composites, the poling of glasses to induce anisotropy or possibly optical activity, and finally, fiber designs for N x N fused taper couplers.
