  • Publication number: 20210371688
    Abstract: An optical fiber having a coating that includes a photoreactive marking compound is described. The photoreactive marking compound has two states that differ in the intensity and/or wavelength of fluorescence. Exposure of the photoreactive marking compound to electromagnetic radiation induces a transformation of the photoreactive marking compound from one state to the other state. The difference in fluorescence between the two states provides a detectable contrast that can be used to mark the optical fiber. A pattern of marks can be customized to different optical fibers to provide unambiguous identification of individual fibers. The coating may also include a pigment, where either or both of the pigment and photoreactive marking compound may function as a marker for identifying the optical fiber. The method extends generally to marking of films, coatings, and articles made of polymers or plastics.
