ABSTRACT:
A vapor-phase axial deposition system (5) for fabricating a lightguide soot boule (16). The system (5) is comprised of a short cylindrical housing (10) having end plates (26--26) affixed thereto. A starting member (58) is radially directed into the central portion of the housing (10) and a torch (12) is activated to direct a stream of glassy soot thereat. The member (58) is simultaneously rotated and withdrawn from the housing (10) as a cylindrical, porous, soot boule is formed on the end thereof. The housing (10) having a substantially two-dimensional character eliminates secondary gas flow within the housing (10) resulting in enhanced deposition rates and repeatability.
