Abstract:

An optically clear sapphire fiber was subjected to increased temperatures up to 1000 F to determine the change in percent transmission. The transmission was measured in two regions of the optical spectrum the ultraviolet region from 235 nanometers to 365 nanometers, and the visible region from 4100 Angstroms to 6500 Angstroms. The percent transmission of the fiber decreased with increasing temperature. As the wavelength increased the effect of a temperature increase was less. Author
