QUESTION:

We are having issues with shrinkage and are focusing on the polish step.  Looking for some steps, best practices, solutions, etc.

 

ANSWER:

The final step prior to the first deposition pass is a high-temperature (~2000 degrees C) flame polish. We have a section on Flame Polish in our blog, Preparing to Manufacture an Optical Fiber Preform that includes helpful tips.
