Abstract

Nitin Goel, a graduate of the College of Engineering at Virginia Tech, along with a team of researchers, has discovered a new way to make optical fibers with compound glass cores. Called"core-suction," the method is ideal for producing the non-linear fibers required for fiber lasers, Raman amplifiers, and continuum generation.
