  • inside vapor-phase oxidation (IVPO)

A method that produces low-loss optical fibers. A glass tube rotates while reactants pass through the tube and heat is externally applied by a burner that traverses the tube. The oxidizable vapors in the tube are converted to soot particles that adhere to the inside of the tube to form glassy layers. An optical fiber can then be drawn from this preform.
