Paper Abstract

Progresses in fiber technology - low NA fibers, graded index fibers, perfluorinated fibers of extremely low attenuation - let expect that polymer fibers find their way from in-house wiring outside to the premise and moreover to the access network. In order to study the application range of these fibers a long term reliability test at different temperatures and humidity conditions has been initialized. This contains an accelerated lifetime test in order to separate thermal activated processes from those of different origin. Different environmental conditions will be simulated, especially adverse ones.The experiments are planned as a round robin test and can possibly contribute to a new concept of standard specification.
