Paper Abstract

Investigations of optical losses in silicone-clad fibers immersed into water have shown that water diffusion through the reflecting cladding results in the loss increase, which is of a reversible character. Such fiber can easily be integrated in an optical fiber cable; water penetration can then be localised by the back-scattering method.
