Abstract

A new technique for recoating optical fiber with a polyimide jacket is demonstrated. Single layer coatings of 7 μm, and double layers of 15 μm have been applied to 125 μm fiber. The coatings are uniform and concentric, and can be applied with no loss of original fiber strength. The technique accommodates multiple fiber diameters without the need for interchanging parts.
