Usually, these parameters are determined by best fitting the EoS solely to the vapour pressure of the considered substance.
The determination of m and n is performed with the help of a non-linear regression procedure (Daroux, 1991) by minimizing the sum of the squared residuals when, in a first step, as usual only vapour pressure data are used.
The general dependence of the vapour pressure on the emulsion composition is a necessary prerequisite in order to establish the evaporation path.
Typically, optical fibres are fabricated by flame hydrolysis or chemical vapour deposition (CVD) processes that use gases or high vapour pressure liquids as precursors.
