Heat-Resistant Fibers and Optical Fibers
This part deals with two kinds of sol-gel derived fibers, i.e., heat-resistant fibers drawn directly from sols and optical fibers prepared from sol-gel derived silica preforms. These two kinds of fibers are completely different from each other from the standpoint of the sol-gel technique employed for their preparation. The former are related to the problem of spinnable sols and the latter to the formation of bulk, crack-less silica bodies (see also chapter 3.1.1).
