Abstract:

Development, fabrication, and delivery to NRL of 48km of optical fiber are summarized in this final report. The fiber was designed to have a cladding diameter of 80 micrometer and to be single mode at 1300 micrometers. Development of thin single layer coatings for the fiber is reported. Fabrication of fiber with unusually small cladding and coating diameters is reported.... Fiber coatings, Fiber design, Fibers, Optical fiber, Sensor.
