Paper Abstract

We describe a new optical fiber coating, comprising layers of UV-curable silicone and high-temperature acrylate, with and without hermetic carbon. Optical and mechanical properties of graded index 50/125 μm multimode fibers drawn with the new coating are examined. The new coatings display superior thermal stability in comparison with conventional dual acrylate coatings.
