Paper Abstract

The average (X) and standard deviation (s) of losses in single-mode fused silica fibres are determined, by a Monte-Carlo technique, taking into account: (11) the tolerance in the operating-wavelength of multi-longitudinal mode lasers; (2) the operating wavelength-regions according to CCITT and EIA; and (3) the OH-ion fibre content. As manin result is noted that while the effect of the laser-wavelength distribution is important, a significant OH-ion concentration (up to 2 dB/Km in the 1.3789 μm overtone) does not degrade the attenuation spread (3 s/X) neither the maximum attenuation (X + 3s) in the operating wavelength-regions.
