Silicon Rod

Silicon rods are predominantly used as a material for preforming various fiber types. The requirements differ depending on the fiber type. Typically, it is either a low absorption, a specific refractive index value or certain geometrical specifications. High purity fused silica rods generally serve the following purposes in optical fiber production: as a material which later forms the light-conducting core of the fiber, for forming a preform for photonic crystal fibers (PCF) or for locally adjusting the refractive index or the generation of mechanical stress in the fibers.
