A method is described for determining unambiguously from the far-field pattern of single-mode fibres the core diameter and the refractive index difference between core and cladding. It involves measurements only of the half-power width of the main lobe and the width of the first minimum. When a single-mode fibre is curved we find that, as expected, the bend loss increases sharply below a critical bend radius but that the radiation does not leak away uniformly with distance. Instead a series of discrete, well-defined rays is observed
