Loss mechanisms in practical single-mode fibres.
In, 4th European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC), Geneva, Switzerland,
12 - 15 Sep 1978.
Detailed studies have been carried out on propagation in practical single-mode fibres and especially of those factors causing a rise of attenuation due to radiation. A new theory of loss caused by mode conversion is proposed and is applied to the problem of microbending The factors which must be taken into account during cable manufacture are discussed
