Paper Abstract

The results of investigations of reflection signals occurring at fusion splices on real cable sections of long- haul transmission lines are represented. Conditions of rising of reflection signals at fusion splices of the single mode step index optical fibers were experimentally investigated. Approximate solution to estimate probability of reflection at splice of single mode optical fibers is proposed. The results of probability calculations of reflection at splice of conventional single mode step index optical fibers are represented. Analysis of obtained data shows a good agreement between experimental and calculation results.
