Paper Abstract

Optical fiber glass is a brittle material. Classical optical fibers and capillaries (hollow optical fibres) find their applications in optical communications and instrumental, sensory systems. The fibers have to fulfill there certain standards for mechanical performance and safety, like resistance to tensile strain, resistance to bending to some degree. The paper gathers certain rules of theoretical and practical design and measurements of mechanical resistance of optical fibers. In particular, mechanical strength of hollow optical fibers is debated for instrumental applications. The capillary optical fibers were pulled in the Department of Optical Radiation (KPO) of Bialystok Univ. of Technology.
