Abstract
Single-mode germanosilicate-core optical fibers were fabricated by the MCVD process modified by sintering of the deposited soot in a reduced atmosphere (helium- or nitrogen- containing one). The fibers showed a higher photoinduced refractive index change and a higher efficiency of (chi) (2) formation as compared to an ordinary germanosilicate fiber. The sintering process in nitrogen and helium atmospheres was shown to increase the concentration of germanium oxygen-deficient centers. Besides, nitrogen appears to enter into the glass network in a sufficient concentration to modify the glass network and to additionally increase photosensitivity of the fibers.
