Abstract

We have systematically measured the differential stress-optic coefficient, Δ C , in a number of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) fibers drawn with different stress, ranging from 2 up to 27 MPa . Δ C was determined in transverse illumination by measuring the dependence of birefringence on additional axial stress applied to the fiber. Our results show that Δ C in PMMA fibers has a negative sign and ranges from 4.5 to 4.5 × 10 12 Pa 1 , depending on the drawing stress. Increase of the drawing stress results in greater initial fiber birefringence and lower Δ C .
