Contents Introduction -- Reliability of optical fibres, components and networks -- Optical fibres -- Handleability of Fibres -- Ageing Tests of Fibres -- Fusion Splices -- Life Time Estimation and B-Value -- Cables and Outside-Plant Components -- Connection and Branching Components -- Bragg-Grating Components -- Optical Fibre Amplifiers.
Summary Reliability of Optical Fibres and Components reports the findings of COST 246 (1993-1998) - European research initiative in the field of optical telecommunications. Experts in the materials and reliability field of optical fibres and components have contributed to this unique study programme. The results, conclusions and achievements of their work have been obtained through joint experimentation and discussion with representatives from manufacturing and research groups. Topics covered include: Lifetime estimation; Failure mechanisms; Ageing test methods; Field data and service environments for components. For the first time the reader can explore the reliability of products and examine the results and conclusions in published form. This comprehensive volume is intended to provide a deeper understanding of the reliability of optical fibres and components. The book will be extremely useful to all scientists and practitioners involved in the industry.
