Abstract

In this chapter research based work encompassing present and future trends of optics has been presented. Various research aspects in the area of silica-glass fiber have substantially been explored and pointed out for future trends. An effort has been made to incorporate the latest and updated research so as to provide the premises for the work that has been done in the subject area.
