Abstract : It has been discovered in our experiments in this reporting period, that the fibers we have been studying are coated, though unjacketed. This coating acts to broaden the mode widths in the GAWBS spectrum. To verify the effect due to the coating, the fibers in our stock must be stripped of their coating. We were successful in producing bare fibers up to 25m chemically. A series of experiments were performed to compare the bare fiber GAWBS spectrum with the coated fiber spectrum. Their significant difference in mode linewidth has practical structural sensing applications.
