The Glass Studio has extensive glass melting and extrusion equipment for working with compound glass compositions such as tellurite, lead-oxide and germanate. This puts us in a strong position to produce rods, tubes and more complex structures directly from exotic bulk glasses made in the facility. These can then be used either to stack a PCF preform, or to draw the more complex structures directly to fibre.

The glass studio melts speciality glasses with specific optical properties and draws tubes for further use.
