Recent progress on the development of hermetically coated optical fiber is presented. This fiber provides improved fatigue resistance; high usable strength; and excellent resistance to hydrogen permeation, 25-90°C water, and corrosive chemicals such as hydrofluoric acid and boiling sodium hydroxide. These attributes make the hermetically coated fiber an excellent candidate for use in undersea cables and other special applications where a harsh environment prevails
