Paper Abstract

The attenuation of matched cladding and depressed cladding fibres cabled in a loose tube cable structure was measured in the temperature range of - 40 deg C to + 60 deg C. Also measured was the microbending sensitivity of the fibres, which was found to be a function of mode field diameter and cut-off wavelength. From these measurements a direct correlation between the increase in attenuation present at low temperatures (- 20 deg C and below) and the microbendig sensitivity could be deduced.
