Paper Abstract

Optical fibers with different protective coatings were abraded then submerged in 50°C water for twenty-eight days. The strength of the abraded and control fibers exposed to zero-stress aging was tracked over time with tensile strength testing. Although the abrasion test represented a severe model of fiber handling, no appreciable strength degradation was detected on the fiber before or after zero-stress aging.
