Paper Abstract

A new feature of relationship between macro-bending losses and bending length of mono-mode fibers is found experimentally: when bending radius is 4mm nearly no loss is detected on the condition that bending angle is less than 20 degrees. The similar phenomena happen when bending radius is 3mm or 2mm. The turning bending degree that bending losses will increase rapidly is called critical angle by us. The result will give us some new clues that how the bending losses change with bending length on earth. And some theoretical work should be done to explain the phenomenon.
