Paper Abstract

Traditional fiber optic cable materials affect the well- known optical stability of a bare fiber. An expanded PTFE buffering system is described with effectively decouples an optical fiber from other cable elements. The optical performance of the resulting cable closely approximates that of a bare optical fiber even under thermal or mechanical stresses.
