Abstract : The V-grooved cylindrical optical cable design is particularly suitable to obtain very low loss optical cables. From experience of this structure, metal-free optical cables have been manufactured. After a brief description of the V-grooved cylindrical structure, non metallic materials which can be used as reinforcement are described. Composition, mechanical and optical properties of metal-free V-grooved cylindrical cables are given. (Author)
