A review of previous studies on the electrical breakdown characteristics of glass is presented along with a discussion of the additional research required. The use of thick wall glass tubing as the dielectric in high voltage (230 kV and higher) underground cable systems is being evaluated under contract with the U.S. Energy Research and Development(More)
High bandwidth (more than 500 MHz/spl middot/km) graded-index polymer optical fiber (GI POF) for near infra-red use was successfully fabricated by using partially fluorinated acrylate polymer. Since only three carbon-hydrogen bonds exist in a monomer unit, an absorption loss due to the stretching vibration of the carbon-hydrogen bond was remarkably reduced(More)
