    • Abstract


      Loss of optical power in a single-mode optical fibre due to bending has been investigated for a wavelength of 1550 nm. In this experiment, the effects of bending radius (4–15 mm, with steps of 1 mm), and wrapping turns (up to 40 turns) on loss have been studied. Twisting the optical fibre and its influence on power loss also have been investigated.

      Variations of bending loss with these two parameters have been measured, loss with number of turns and radius of curvature have been measured, and with the help of computer curve fitting method, semi-empirical relationships between bending loss and these two parameters have been found, which show good agreement with the obtained experimental results.
