Abstract

This report describes the development of a new model for the vibrational and Raman gain spectra of vitreous silica used for optical fibres. The technique requires a limited number of input parameters, is statistical and computationally inexpensive. Model results indicate some correlation with measured spectra that show promise for further development of the technique.
A model such as that reported on here may be of interest to optical fibre manufacturers, since it potentially allows the straight forward modelling of Raman spectra for different fibre core dopants. It may also prove a useful contribution to the understanding of the vitreous state of materials. However, the force constant simplifications made in this investigation should be revised to include long range interactions.
