In this paper, we propose an extension of the Clausius-Mossotti interpolation scheme, so that the refractive index and material dispersion of Ge02 and F doped silica glasses, with doping concentrations different than that of published data, can be predicted in the 0.6 μm to 1.8 pm wavelength region. The new interpolation expression provides a well-behaved functional relationship for use in computer models which analize propagation in single-mode fibers. The technique proposed is particularly powerful because it can be applied to any glass, whether single or multicomponent, having any other single dopant.
