Abstract
A technique was developed for obtaining proof-stress level flaws in commercial optical fiber with low variability in strength. It involves a novel method for stabilizing and protecting the round fiber prior to indentation. Indentation was performed in an automated fashion using a nano-indenter equipped with a cube-corner indenter. A Weibull modulus of 50 was achieved with a value of 100 over the lower portion of the distribution. This method will be useful in static fatigue testing of fiber with proof test level flaws.
