Paper Abstract

The paper consists of three major parts: 1) general idea of special purpose optical fibres manufacturing, 2) technological process and material considerations, 3) applications considerations and conclusions. Special-purpose optical fibres were assembled in this work of glass rods (rectangular or circular) to give eventually more or less classical structure containing one or multiple core and one homogeneous or nonhomogeneous optical-supporting cladding. Some modifications of this basic assembling technology may also include multistage hybrid process like multicrucible and multirod-in-tube. These processes give only intermediate preforms. We suggest here a namelMOSAIC FIBRESIfor optical filaments manufactured by the preform assembling technology. Several technological experiments have been performed to manufacture some basic kinds of mosaic optical fibres. Several kinds of specialty optical fibres like: multicore, noncircular core, nonhomogeneous core, ring-like core, attenuation/dispersion/birefringence/polarization tailored, polarizing/modulating/amplifying etc, have been used to build optical fibre compatible devices and censors. Some of these devices and sensors have been applied in laboratory simulated hostile environments.
