Quartz optical fiber or preform is composed of core and cladding with different refractive index (RI). Their compositions are different from the core to cladding in order to acquire desired RI profile. The physical properties from core to cladding are different, such as thermal expansion coefficients, thermal capacity and glass transition temperatures, which have much effect on the properties of optical fiber. The material composition and structure in PCVD single mode (SM) fiber was introduced in this paper. The composition of PCVD SM fiber was SiO2-GeO2-F-(Cl). F acted as a water-getter to reduce water peak besides lowering the RI of quartz glass and GeO2-F co-deposition was adopted in PCVD fiber. The functional graded material (FGM) design in PCVD SM fiber, which can reduce the attenuation, PMD, splicing loss and improve microbending resistance, was analyzed and discussed.
