Pressure Can Reduce Transmission loss of Glass Fibers

Researchers suggest that putting an adequate amount of pressure on silica glass during the glass manufacturing state will reduce the attenuation of the resulting optical fibers. Researches conducted by Penn State and AGC Inc. in Japan reveal that the silica glass used for the fiber would have less signal loss if it were manufactured under high pressure. Attenuation is the…
