Paper Abstract

In this work we present an innovative method of connecting metal coated optical fibers with metal surfaces. The process is based on electrolytic reaction between copper and allows to obtain a robustand inflexible connection. Furthermore reliability tests of such fiber to metal joints have been performed, with the results of mechanical strength and temperature resistance tests presented. Additionally, as accelerated oxidation of copper at elevated temperatures is a major concern in long term temperature stability of the connection, we propose a method of slowing down the oxidation process with chemical nickel coating. Analysis of the obtained results allows us to predict that the investigated connection may find applications in various industrial optical sensors with special focus on harsh environments.
