Brillouin frequency shift in two kinds of jacketed optical single-mode silica fiber, with an ultraviolet curable resin coat and a nylon coat, has been measured at temperatures ranging from −30 to +60°C. It has been found that there are two reasons for the Brillouin frequency shift change in jacketed optical fibers against temperature change. One is the Brillouin frequency shift change for bare fibers. The other is the thermal stress due to the differences in thermal expansion coefficients in bare fiber and its coating material.
