Abstract
High coupling efficiency, as well as simple connector and coupler technology make plastic clad silica (PCS) fibers very attractive in applications requiring frequent structural adjustment like, for example, Local Area Networks (LAN). However, due to a significant variation of the core-cladding refractive index difference, severe variations of attenuation and band-width within an extended temperature range (-40°C up to +80°C) must be taken into account. The thermal characteristics of PCS fiber are therefore radically different from those of all-glass fibers.
