Reliability of multicore optical fibers in fiber-optic delay lines

  • S. L. Semjonov
  • O. N. Egorova


Analytical expressions for estimating the minimum acceptable bending diameter are derived as a function of the expected service life, probability of premature fracture, and optical fiber diameter, which can be used to estimate the multicore optical fiber functionality in the particular applications.
