Paper Abstract

Spun optical fibers with different structure and different spinning rates are fabricated and their spectral transmittance is measured. It is found that the transmittance of spun stress-type fiber drops down in a certain long wavelength band as the spinning rate is increased, while this phenomenon is not found in the spun conventional fiber or un-spun stress-type fiber. We suggest it due to the micro-bending-loss induced by the spinning eccentricity of the fiber core.
