The refractive index and density of fluorine- and chlorine-doped silica glasses were measured as functions of fictive temperature. The halogen concentrations were observed to have a refractive index or density that is independent of the fictive temperature were found. This implies that these properties are not affected by any heat-treatment conditions.

    It is reported for the first time that refractive indices are reduced remarkably by residual stress in undoped silica-core/fluorine-doped silica-clad single-mode fibers. The very high residual stress concentrated at the small diameter core is induced by drawing tension because of the difference...
