LEONI Fiber Optics
Fused silica rods are used for the assembling of special fibers and optical components. A distinction is made between three sorts of combined silica:
◾Fused Silica rods made from undoped silica with high OH content
◾Fused Silica rods made from undoped silica with low OH content
◾special dopings, e.g. boron-doped (up to 20wt%) Fused Silica rods
Undoped silica is ideal for applications in the UV/ VIS range. It is used for efficient manufacuring of optical components such as lenses mirrors and plates, as well as for the production of special preforms. The higly pure material offers best optical and physical properties and highest homogeneity in the refractive index.
SQ is being produced using a special melting technology, by which highest concentrations of OH and H2 can be brought into the material.
