Abstract

A new technique for recoating optical fibre with a polyimide jacket is demonstrated and characterised. Single and double layer coatings of 7 and 15μm, respectively, have been applied to 85 and 125μm fibre. The coatings are uniform and pinhole free, and the recoated sections have demonstrated high strength.
