Paper Abstract

Many properties of optical fibers, particularly their mechanical strength and resistance to water corrosion depend on the adhesion of their protective coatings to the glass part of the fiber. Therefore, the protective coatings materials providing high adhesion should be applied for optical fiber construction. It is possible to predict the value of the adhesion energy from the properties of the surfaces being in contact. The paper presents the application of inverse gas chromatography to determine these properties.
