Abstract
This paper is an update of one published with the same title and by the same authors in a special issue of “Optical Engineering” on optical fiber reliability in June 1991. It points out some recent major advances in two areas of importance to fiber strength and reliability. These are (1) the measurement and prediction of small crack velocities and thus long failure times, and (2) a consideration of the minimum fatigue rate possible in an hermetically-coated fiber.
