Silica Fibre Fabrication, University of Southampton


Novel optical fibre is at the heart of optical fibre research at the Optoelectronics Research Centre. The role of the Silica Fibre Fabrication group, led by Jayanta Sahu, is to research and fabricate new fibre structures in collaboration with other research groups working on the applications of these fibres.

Examples of the fibre we develop are: Large mode area fibre for high power fibre lasers; Double clad fibres; High birefringence fibres; Holey fibres; Photosensitive fibres (for Bragg gratings); Novel dopant fibres for lasers and amplifiers; Fibres for nonlinear application

We work on all aspects of fibre fabrication from Materials Science and Chemistry, to achieve the desired fibre composition, to Physics and Engineering, to develop novel structures and fabrication techniques.
