Term Main definition
Macrobend
A major bend in an optical fiber with a radius small enough to change the angle of incidence and allow light to pass through the interface between the core and the cladding rather than reflect off it. Macrobends can cause signal attenuation or loss by allowing light to leave the optical fiber core.
