Paper Title:
Effect of the Nanostructure Control on the Novel Optical Properties of Silica Photonic Glass Synthesized by VAD Method
  Abstract

This research reports the development of high homogeneity silica glass for photonic components synthesized by the VAD (Vapor-phase Axial Deposition) method. Structural radial homogeneity of silica soot were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). It was established a relationship with the refractive index homogeneity, n, and the birefringence of consolidated boules characterized through interferometry, optical spectrometry, and polarization spectrophotometry. By controlling the silica soot nanostructure during the deposition stage, a material with high radial homogeneity of refractive index of 1 ppm and birefringence of 2 nm/cm can be synthesized.
