Abstract
While great progress has been made recently in the development of mechanically satisfactory lightguide fibers, detailed fundamental understanding in a number of areas seems lacking. Although in some cases this understanding may seem practically unimportant, in others it is critical to our ability to improve our product as well as to predict its reliability confidently.
