Paper Abstract

A technology is described which allows singlemode and multimode optical fibers to be bent in radii less than 1mm without significant increase in loss or long term reliability. This technology is particularly suitable for the development of high-performance low-cost right- angle connectors for high-density patch panels and interconnects.
