One challenge to the electrical engineer consists in remodelling and solving Maxwell's equations in the complicated boundary conditions of a real optical waveguide. Much progress has been reported in this field and was embodied in the design and manufacture of advanced optical fibers, but the obscure process of obtaining these great results makes it desirable to find more obvious and simpler ways of getting insight intO the behaviour of light in the confined geometry of a fiber. In this paper we use the concept of topological phases to estimate the phase shift of the light wave due to winding of the optical fiber in a cable.
