Abstract

The dependence of the radio-frequency phase shift on microbending loss for single-mode fibers has been investigated theoretically. Using representative source and fiber cable parameter values, the frequency stability of a prototype fiber link is found to be about 10−16 for an averaging time of 103 sec.
