The stress optic coefficient and stress profile in optical fibers have been determined photoelastically using a polariscope having good reproducibility and high sensitivity. The results of the work presented in this paper indicate that the photoelastic behavior may be different in fibers and in bulk glasses. The photoelastically determined clad compression in strengthened fibers was found to correlate well with the strengthening observed in these fibers using tensile tests.
