Microbending loss in a step-index single-mode fiber is formulated in an expression which provides an explicit dependence on wavelength λ and relative index difference Δ. For the permissible mean bending radiusRdaggercorresponding to a given loss,Delta^{3/2}Rdagger/lambdais the functionfof only a normalized frequency υ. This property resembles that for the uniform-bending loss. However,fin the microbending loss depends less critically on υ than in the uniform-bending loss.
