A model to predict the temperature‐induced added loss in dual‐coated optical fibers is presented. Longitudinal and lateral temperature‐induced forces, originating from fiber irregularities and from the mismatch among the expansion coefficients of the glass fiber and of the coatings, are consistently included in the model. Both the bendings of the glass fiber and of the coating are considered. Transmission losses are explicity computed according to Petermann's theory on the microbending of single‐mode…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
