Cross Section Design of Holey Optical Fibers with Coating Based on Stress Analysis in Tension

Bai, Ruixiang, Chen, Zhenhuan, & Yan, Cheng (2007) Cross Section Design of Holey Optical Fibers with Coating Based on Stress Analysis in Tension. In International Conference on Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics, November 5-7, 2007, Wuxi, China.


In this paper, the mechanical behavior of newly developed holey optical fibers with and without coating was investigated by numerical analysis. Based on experimental work, the tensile failure characteristics were observed. The stress characteristics of some typical holey fibers with different section design were studied though the finite element method under tensile load. The optimum design of air hole arrangements and sizes were proposed according to the numerical results. The influence of the coating thickness on the axial stress of holey optical fiber was also investigated. The numerical results and conclusions will be useful for the cross section optimum design of holey optical fiber for increase its strength.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
