Paper Abstract

In this paper, some results of optimization of process of arc fusion splicing of single mode optical telecommunication fibers in climatic circumstances characterized by temperature changes in the range t =-2 °C ÷ 32 °C and by relative humidity variations in the range RH = 30 ÷ 92 % are presented. The means of determining jointly the climatic circumstances: temperature, relative humidity and dew-point excluding possibility of performing a paper arc fusion splicing of optical fibers is reported. The results of measurements of attenuation, reflectivity and mechanical strength of arc fusion splicing of single mode telecommunication optical fibers produced in extreme climatic circumstances are presented as well.
