Paper Abstract

Results of cycle temperature tests of optical fiber fusion splices are represented. An algorithm, method and object of investigation are described. Thermochamber providing temperature range from -- 60 degree(s)C to + 50 degree(s)C was used to carry out temperature tests. Whole delivery length of optical cable was tested. Fibers at the cable end were sequentially joined together. Two splice groups were investigated. First group consisted of splices with reflection attenuation less than 90 dB. Second group included splices with reflection attenuation more than 100 dB. One-half of each group splices was protected by sleeves, another -- by silicon gel. Splice parameters were measured by optical time domain reflectometer.
