Abstract

The stress properties of GeO2- and F-doped optical fibers drawn in different conditions have been investigated. The results are in excellent agreement with calculated data based on a generalized theoretical model. For constant drawing forces the influence on the stress profiles was found to be independent of drawing speed and temperature. The total observed stress is the sum of preform stress and drawing-induced stress.
