In this work the changes in the refractive optical properties of nylon 66 fibres occurring due to heating in water and detergent solutions of different concentrations have been studied with the aid of interferometric techniques. Multiple-beam Fizeau fringes for the two alternative input light polarisations have been used in order to determine the refractive indices of the core and skin, their mean value, and the corresponding birefringences.
