ABSTRACT
Optical loss at 1.53-µm wavelength is observed in silica-based single-mode fibers drawn at high speeds. This loss, which is induced by high-speed drawing, is attributed to silylidyne group absorption. It is found that silica glass fibers occasionally contain hydrogens associated with silicons in addition to hydroxyl groups.
