Abstract
A process has been developed, for the mechanical shaping of silica fibre preforms. Porous preforms are shaped from prefabricated powders and transfered, to glass rods by thermal treatment. Drawn fibers now have attenuations of 1 dB/km and an OH absorption. of 0.5 dB/km at 138o nm. Both single and multimode fibres have been produced.
