Paper Abstract

The interferometric method for ferrule geometrical parameters measuring and testing is presented. The geometrical parameters are defined according to the IEC international standards. The quality of the ferrule face has important influence on transmission parameters of optical connectors like the attenuation and reflectance.The measurements results of the spherical height for FC-APC, SC-APC and E2000-APC are presented in this work. The high value of protrusion has influence on thermal and mechanical resistance of optical connectors. The problem is presented for the temperature and vibration tests.
