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, clad fibers were drawn from the scaled-up meltings of core and clad glasses. Also, a detailed procedure for scaled-up melting was prepared which could be adapted to large scale melting in the fabrication of 5-in. faceplates. Work on compositional adjustment of the clad glass (157K-5) was initiated to develop a clad glass having a lower coefficient of thermal expansion than the core glass (25AT). (Author)
