Paper Abstract

A study has been made of temperature induced losses in monomode fibers with a loose tube, jelly-filled jacket. It has been found that at low temperatures where the fiber has to buckle to fit into the tube, the losses have character of pure bend losses. At high temperatures where the fiber is pressed against the tube wall, the losses are of the microbending type.
