Abstract

A new technique has been developed to measure directly the UV absorption spectrum of optical fibers to wavelengths as short as 200 nm. Both the shape and the intensity of the UV absorption bands found in the fiber correspond to those measured in preforms. No bands other than those attributed to GeO (240 and 330 nm) were observed.
