Paper Abstract

There exist commercially available fiber optic connectors which are capable of extremely low insertion losses per mated pair due to the utilization of a unique process of optical centering and crimping during termination. We have identified both single-fiber and multi-fiber connectors which utilize this process and have acquired a fabrication line which is capable of performing the active alignment termination process. This paper discusses tests and results required for space usage.
