Abstract

The combined effects of bending and elongation on fiber losses as rays propagate along deformed polymer optical fibers (POFs) are investigated. The variations in power attenuation for various curvature radii and elongations are studied. The experimental results indicate that the combination of bending and elongation significantly affects the power loss of POF. From the results an equation is proposed to predict the power losses for different bent radii and elongations. The maximum difference between the proposed equation and the experimental results is less than 5%.
