Paper Abstract

Optical fibers with improved hermeticity, strength and chemical resistance are presented. Specifically, we provide data demonstrating the resistance of carbon coated optical fibers to hydrogen (high partial pressures and temperatures) and acidic environments. As well we provide data and analysis indicating that carbon coated fibers with increased n-values provide long lifetimes under stressed conditions.
