Paper Abstract

Optical fiber coatings play an important role in strength, fatigue and attenuation performances. The strength and fatigue properties are particularly sensitive to temperature and environment. Optical fibers were coated with polymeric coatings such as ultraviolet (UV) cured acrylate and polyimide, and hermetic coatings such as amorphous carbon. Their strength and fatigue properties at different temperatures were studied.
