Abstract
In this work we investigate the dynamics of the fuse effect propagation in bend loss insensitive fibers. The fuse velocity, threshold power and void period values were compared with those obtained for standard single mode fibers. The results show that the power dependent optical discharge velocity coefficient is 32% higher in G.657 fibers than that in G.652 fibers.
