The work presented in this thesis sets out to explore the optical properties of optical fibres by means of non-invasive microscopic techniques such as Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) microscopy. It seeks to provide the fibre optic industrial and research community with an alternative tool that is cost effective, having the accuracy and robustness of the existing techniques in addition to being non-destructive relative to the optical fibre. The development of non-invasive microscopic imaging methods for exploring the physical properties of optical fibres is essential as alternative methods to the well-known standard ones that are often destructive.
