Abstract:

The Raman spectrum from pure silica optical fibers has been analyzed into a set of Gaussian components. Each component used is related to an observed feature of the spectrum, and a residual of about 1 resulted without the use of additional components. Both single- and multi-phonon peaks were fitted. These Gaussian components have analog in the infrared absorption spectrum, and hence they are of value in studying the fundamental and overtone infrared absorption of silica, as well as the infrared OH overtone and combination spectra.
