Paper Abstract

The effective cutoff wavelength is known to be dependent on fiber length, bending radius and fiber connections. In this paper we show that the effective cutoff wavelength is also temperature dependent in depressed clad single mode fibers. The annealing condition which affects the results is discussed. A theoretical model based on residual stress remaining in the fiber during the drawing process is proposed to explain the experimental observation. The temperature dependence of the effective cutoff wavelength in matched clad fiber is also presented for comparison.
