1 February 1992 Determination of fiber buffer refractive-index and dimensions

The buffer coating of an optical fibre has long been regarded as a purely mechanical part of the fibre, with no part to play in the optical properties of the fibre or fibre systems, other than as a cladding mode stripper. It is therefore generally assumed that once light enters the buffer coating it is lost from the system. For example, most theories concerning bend loss from optical fibres make the equivalent assumption that the cladding has infinite extent
