Soft Glass Optical Fibres: Properties, Fabrication and Applications
In this webinar hosted by the Fiber Modeling and Fabrication Technical Group, Heike Ebendorff-Heidepriem from the University of Adelaide will present an overview of the diverse types of soft glasses, including fluoride, chalcogenide and heavy metal oxide glasses. The basic glass composition-structure-property relationships of the various glass types relative to each other and to the widely used silica are described with respect to fibre fabrication and applications. The glass and preform fabrication methods and their challenges are evaluated with regard to manufacture of low-loss solid and microstructured fibres with targeted structures. The webinar will conclude with recent trends in fabrication, fibre types and applications.

Subject Matter Level:
• Introductory - Assumes little previous knowledge of the topic
