Paper Abstract

The availability of the E-band with full spectrum fiber is possible by a new fiber manufacturing process. This increased bandwidth let the full spectrum fiber superior choice for metropolitan and access optical networks. In optical fiber application, the hydrogen aging effect is important factor in the long-term reliability of an optical fiber. In this work, we report a test results for hydrogen aging effect of full spectrum fiber. The attenuations of the fibers are varying even in a hydrogen-free environment after aging test. It is also found that so small bending of full spectrum fiber in hydrogen aging test chamber cause significant variations in optical characteristics.
