Currently there is strong interest in optical fibers for use as a transmission medium, analogous to the use of coaxial or wire pairs in the low-frequency region. Most work is devoted to a fiber structure consisting of a central glass core surrounded by a cylindrical glass cladding having a slightly lower index of refraction. This in turn requires that the chemical composition of the core glass differs from that of the cladding glass, leading to undesired effects at the core-cladding interface and perhaps limiting the minimum fiber losses achievable.
