Abstract
The subject of the research was silicate glasses characterized by properly matched optical, thermal and rheological properties, which would enable their use in manufacturing of multifiber light and image-guide integrated rods aimed for high efficient guiding of VIS and NIR radiation (0, 4 divided by 2 micrometers ). Elaborating a synthesis and laboratory melting method of the low dispersion, high homogeneity colorless multicomponent silicate rod and clad glasses, mandatory components of fiberoptic light guides, as well as a high absorbing extra mural absorption glass, for outside optical insulation layer, has been presented. The manufacturing possibilities of integrated rod-shaped light and image-guiding structures, with high efficiency to transmit a VIS and NIR radiation have been stated. They are mainly used as light conductors in light-cured polymer dentist lamps, in laser devices for biostimulation, therapeutics, cosmetics, and medical treatments, as well as in advanced devices for photon coagulation.
