Report: Making single-mode preforms by the MCVD process


In the last few years, system technology has developed sufficiently to take advantage of the low-loss, high-transmission capability of single-mode fibers. First produced commercially in 1983, single-mode fiber now accounts for over 90 percent of all fiber made at AT&T Network Systems' Atlanta Works.
