22 March 1983 Measurements And Modeling Of Microbending Attenuation On Spools Wound For Payout
Author Affiliations +
Attenuation Measurements have been made at 0.82 pm and 1.3 pm on 13 types of monofilament fibers wound on conical payout spools at four levels of pressure. An analytical model of microbending attenuation has been derived by modifying a previous model by Gloge. The measured data fit satisfactorily around the trend predicted by the model. Separate trends are explained for graded index and step index fibers. The influences on attenuation of payout link design parameters including numerical aperture, core, cladding and buffer diameters, spool diameter, winding tension and materials choices are also explained.
