Abstract
We present the characteristics of Thalium-Zirconium and Natrium-Calcium glasses used for manufacturing of optical waveguides and fibers. The glasses have been melted and processed in several tens of different microsamples using originally developed sensitizing technology. Technological facilities have been presented. Ten samples of interferometric optical guided-wave temperature sensors have been constructed and their material and performance characteristics debated. The sensitivities of optical sensors of up to 300 rad/mK are accesible with this glass system. The thermally induced stress in the waveguides adds or substracts up to 10% of this sensitivity.
