A new variant of the MCVD method for the fabrication of polarization-maintaining single- mode optical fibers has been studied. The method is based on the usage of screens to form a necessary temperature field for gas-phase etching by fluorine liberating gas. The fibers of various structures with beat length 5 mm and best value of h parameter 5.10-5 m-1 at 1 micrometers have been prepared by this method.
