Abstract
THE PRIMARY TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DESIGN FIBER OPTIC CONNECTORS WHICH INCORPORATE SOL-GEL MADE GRIN LENSES WHICH CAN WITHSTAND THE HIGH TEMPERATURE AND VIBRATION WHICH IS PRESENT IN A MILITARY AIRCRAFT ENGINE. THE SECONDARY OBJECTIVE WILL BE TO IDENTIFY THOSE SOL-GEL SYSTEMS WHICH SHOW THE BEST RESISTANCE TO DAMAGE DUE TO HEATING FOR INCORPORATION INTO THE FIBER OPTIC CONNECTORS REQUIRED TO OPERATE IN SEVERE ENVIRONMENTS.
