    Abstract

    Exposure of silica fibers to hydrogen results in the growth of absorption bands in the IR region causing optical transmission loss. Causes of the 1.52-μm 1.45 μm, and broad 1.24-μm bands are discussed. The samples used are two types of low-OH-content pure silica core fiber with silicone cladding. They differ in manufacturing methods, one using the Ar + O2 plasma method (P6F), the other the soot method (SFF). P6F has peroxy radicals, whereas SFF does not. The experimental procedure is described, and the results are presented and discussed.
