Abstract
The determination of the sensitivity of a single-mode optical fibre to microbending and macrobending is of great importance. Two kinds of spot-size rule such a sensitivity: wn, the r.m.s. width of the near-field, and Woo the inverse of the transverse propagation constant in the cladding. While measurement techniques for wn are already known, this paper proposes an original method for woo measurements and concentrates on more plausible algorithms for macrobending and microbending loss determination from those measurements.
