Abstract
In this work we compare the thermal behavior, in the fuse effect end point, of bend insensitive optical fiber (G.657) with the standard single mode fiber (G.652). We verify that the G.657 fibers display a higher average temperature value in the mentioned position, which can be explained by the shape of the final void.
