Abstract

Reducing the hydroxyl group content in tellurite glass fibers is essential to exploit the intrinsic mid-infrared transparency of tellurite glass for optical fiber devices. We report the first extruded tellurite glass fibers with low hydroxyl (OH) group content using dry atmosphere for glass melting. For small melt volumes, optimized melting conditions have been identified that enable the absorption at the OH peak at 3.3 µm to be reduced by more than an order of magnitude compared with glasses melted in open air. Annealing and dehydration of tellurite glass in open air was found not to change the OH content. The loss of optical fibers drawn from extruded rods was reduced from ~20 dB/m at 2.0 µm for glass melted in open air to 0.8 dB/m for glass melted in dry atmosphere.

(a) Loss spectra of glass samples (1-10) made from 30 to 50 g batch melts using different fabrication conditions as detailed in the legend. (b) Loss of the OH absorption at 3.3 µm as a function of melting time for 30-50 g batch melts (samples 1-10). The grey region at 1200-1400 dB/m designates the loss of ‘open air’ glasses. The ◆ data point refers to the sample made via remelting of an ‘open air’ glass in dry air.

Fiber loss spectra in the range 500-1700 nm for (a) ‘open air’ fibers #1-3 and (b) ‘dry air’ fibers #4-6 relative to ‘open air’ fiber #3. The loss numbers given in the legends refer to the loss of the OH peak at 3.3 µm of the extruded rods used for drawing the fibers.

Fiber loss spectra for ‘open air’ and ‘dry air’ fibers in the range of 1500-2400 nm measured using supercontinuum white light source. For comparison, the loss spectra measured up to 1700 nm using tungsten filament bulb and different OSA are also shown. The loss numbers given in the legends refer to the loss of the OH peak at 3.3 µm of the extruded rods used for drawing the fibers.
