Abstract : The objective of this contract is to conduct research and development leading to the fabrication of fiber optic faceplates for cathode ray tubes with high transmission in the near and middle ultraviolet regions. During this period, compositional studies of the effects of redox oxide additives were performed. A clad glass matching the thermal expansion and softening point of the core glass was produced. Scaled-up melting of both the core and clad glasses has been initiated and the processing techniques are being optimized. (Author)
