Abstract
The paper presents the optical properties of glasses and optical fibers from quartz glass, obtained by the sol-gel method. A new technique of sol-gel glass preparation is described. Rods were formed from the glass thus produced from which PCS-type fibers were next drawn. Using the same sol-gel technology, the erbium-doped quartz glasses were obtained. The transmission and luminescence characteristics were measured for the glasses as well as for fibers drawn from them.
