Paper Abstract

The transfer function theory for large core optical fiber (bare fiber) and fiber cable (LOCAT) reveals a ray's actual interaction with the fiber lightguide. By applying this new tool in a fiber optic instrument design, we have improved the repeatability and stability of this fiber optic temperature instrument from 4 degree(s)C to 0.2 degree(s)C at 1000 degree(s)C. Several new concepts such as cable bend increments, fiber status, and fiber status stability also are discussed in this paper.
