Amethod of obtaining monofocons from quartz glass based on the interaction of the glass with fluoride melts and solutions, specifically, cadmium fluoride melt and solutions of hydrofluoric acid, has been developed. The theoretical underpinnings for diverse variants of a method of producing monofocons from quartz-glass are examined.
