Abstract: Applications involving optical fibers have grown considerably in recent years with intense levels of research having been focused on the development of not only new generations of optical fiber materials and designs, but also on new processes for their preparation. In this paper, we review the latest developments in advanced materials for optical fibers ranging from silica, to semi-conductors, to particle-containing glasses, to chalcogenides and also in process-related innovations.
Keywords: Optical glasses; silica-based optical fibers; nanoparticle-doped glasses; semiconductor core optical fibers; chalcogenide optical fibers
