Abstract
Optical fiber coatings play an important role in fiber strength, fatigue and attenuation at different temperatures. The major function of the coating is to protect the glass surface from external abrasion and environment, and to preserve strength. Polymeric coatings such as ultraviolet cured epoxy acrylates, silicones, and polyimides are commonly used. The use of polyimide coating on optical fiber has become increasingly important for high temperature applications. The strength and fatigue properties of optical fibers with polyimide coating were studied at different temperatures.
