Abstract

"Apparatus to synthesize and dope high purity, optical quality fused silica by flame hydrolysis was constructed. Fused silica samples containing 0, <35, 35 and 90 ppm niobium were synthesized and characterized by the following properties: purity, refractive index, radiation damage resistance, and transmission spectra. The properties of the undoped sample were shown to be comparable to those of available commercial fused silica. Deviations in the properties of the doped samples from those of the undoped samples were explained in terms of the niobium content"--Abstract, page ii.
