This paper describes excess loss of single-mode jacketed optical fibers at low temperature. A structural model is proposed for the jacketed fiber in order to investigate the relationship between the structure and excess loss. This model clarifies the excess loss increase mechanism that any initial irregularity existing in the jacketed fiber increases due to shrinkage of the jacket and causes excess loss. These results show that reducing the buffer diameter and controlling the fiber deformation inside the jacket are effective in suppressing excess loss at low temperature.
