The radiation-induced attenuation of pure silica core fibers measured at 0.85 μm has been reduced by treating the soot preforms in various oxidizing atmospheres; the most effective of the treatments used in this study was SOCl2. Fibers treated in SOCl2or Cl2also have low OH contents. The radiation-induced loss of the treated fibers has been found to follow the square root of the drawing-induced absorption band height at 0.63μm.
