Abstract

A method, believed novel, is demonstrated for determining the strain-optic coefficient profile as well as the residual-stress profile of an optical fiber by use of a modified polariscope combined with a fiber-elongation apparatus. Measurement results of the residual-stress and the strain-optic coefficient profiles for Ge-doped and Er–Ge–Al-doped optical fibers are demonstrated with this method.
