Paper Abstract

Hard clad silica (HCS) optical fibers have been developed which exhibit a unique combination of Properties. The fibers have high tensile strength, and attenuation only minimally affected by wide temperature ranges, humidity and water immersion. The radiation resistance is also excellent. With this combination of properties, the HCS fiber is ideal candidate for fiber optic cable systems for use in adverse environments.
