Abstract

Microbending effects on cabled single-mode optical fibers are analyzed both theoretically and experimentally over the temperature range — 30°C-25°C. The loss in single-mode fiber is attributed to the coupling between the guided and radiative modes caused by micro-bending effects. The primary coupling between the guided LP01 and the radiative LP11 modes is studied by imposing periodically controlled perturbations on the fiber axis at different temperatures.
