We study the quantum-vacuum geometric phases resulting from the vacuum fluctuation of photon fields in Tomita-Chiao-Wu noncoplanar curved fibre system, and suggest a scheme to test the potential existence of such vacuum effect. Since the signs of the quantum-vacuum geometric phases of left- and right- handed (LRH) circularly polarized light are just opposite, the total geometric phases at vacuum level is inescapably absent in the fibre experiments performed previously by other authors.
