Paper Abstract

Multimode optical fibers have been applied to many data transmission requirements over the last 15 years. Many of these applications have required that the fibers operate in adverse environments, in some cases characterized by intense radiation levels. More recently, single mode fibers and their support technologies have advanced to the point where applications of these fibers are increasing throughout the world. Such single mode fibers offer significantly higher bandwidths than their multimode relatives. Single mode fibers will also be utilized under a range of adverse environmental factors.
