Abstract
The lifetime of an optical fiber depends on its environment. Previous work extensively measured and characterized the separate effects of humidity and temperature on the fatigue parameters using three different kinetics models, but the combined effect has not been determined in detail. In this work, the details of how the fatigue parameters vary with temperature in a humid environment were investigated. It was found that the kinetics model parameters were different from values obtained elsewhere in liquid water. This may be the result of differences in the apparent activation energy for fatigue in liquid and vapor environments.
