During fabrication of optical fibre,does annealing increases the elasticity of the optical fibre or decreases its elasticity? please explain!
Asked by VARSHA MURALI NAIR | 2nd Nov, 2010, 09:50: PM
Heat treatment given to a substance is called annealing. In annealing the substance is first heated to some predetermined temperature and then slowly cooled down to room temperature.
Annealing increases the elasticity of the material ( optical fibre as asked in the question).
We hope this clarifies your doubt.
