Abstract
Common techniques for the fabrication of optical waveguides (MCVD-Modified Chemical Vapor Deposition, OVD-Outside Vapor Deposition, VAD-Vapor Axial Deposition) depend upon the availability of high vapor pressure precursor compounds such as SiC14, GeC14, and POC13. Vapor delivery techniques can not be used to transport compounds with a low vapor pressure. To incorporate such elements into the glass structure, we are investigating aerosol doping for both MCVD and OVD. Low mass flow rate aerosol transport is being used for core doping of rare earth elements in MCVD, and a high mass flow aerosol transport may have application in overcladding in OVD, the fabrication of fiber boules of glasses with a high nonlinear refractive index, and for GRIN (Gradient Index Lenses) lenses.
