High-silica glasses are formed by sintering a dried gel at temperatures below the liquidus. The gel may be formed by mixing colloidal silica particles or silica-containing liquids with appropriate liquids. Fragmentation of the gel during drying is advantageously avoided by redispersing the dried gel or sol in a liquid to yield a colloidal suspension which is then gelled, dried, and finally sintered below the liquidus.
