New Materials Science Study Results Reported from National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS)

May 6, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Data detailed on Materials Science have been presented. According to news reporting out of Limoges, France, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "SiO2/SnO2 nanostructured optical fibers are elaborated using two ways based on the chemical sol-gel method: the 'inverse-dip coating' and the 'powder in tube' processes."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), "The structural and waveguiding properties of the drawn optical fibers are studied according to the concentration of SnO2 nanocrystals."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In this way, the study on the 450-1750 nm wavelength range shows that the transmission band expands to the infrared wavelength as the SnO2 concentration increases and the measured attenuation losses are below 1 dB m(-1)."
