Abstract

Refractive index dispersion has been determined for fluorine doped fused silica containing 1 and 2% fluorine. Addition of fluorine is found to reduce the refractive index and material dispersion. Fibers modeled for minimization of modal dispersion having fused silica cores and fluorine doped silica cladding show a strong composition dependence of the optimum refractive index profile. Comparison of results with those in the literature based on N.A. vs λ measurements reveal minor discrepancies probably due to the drawing process.
