Abstract

A theoretical model for fabrication of light waveguides by aerosol processes is presented. The modified chemical vapor deposition (MCVD) technique is selected for application of this theory. This technique is the most promising one for large scale production of light waveguides for its simplicity and compactness Until now mathematical models describing monodisperse aerosol transport by convection, diffusion and thermophoresis have been proposed for simulation of preform fabrication by MCVD. However these models find no practical application since they do not account for the basic physicochemical phenomena: silica and dopant aerosol dynamics (multicomponent polydisperse particle growth and transport) and process chemistry.
