Abstract
Aging uncoated pristine silica fibers in the vapor of hydrofluoric acid results in the formation of spatially resolved surface etch pits as determined by atomic force microscope images, and mechanical strength reduction. Modeling the strength controlling flaws as partially embedded hemispheres results in good agreement of measured and calculated strength.
