Paper Abstract

The effects of fibre drawing tension on the optical properties of various monomode fibre designs is examined. High drawing tensions were found to give low optical loss. Grading the refractive index profile was found to reduce the drawing-induced loss considerably. Fibres with high germania content show the largest drawing effects.
