Paper Abstract

By decreasing the arc power and choosing the optimal arc time, we use the FSM-20PM ARC Fusion Splicer for joining fluoride(ZBLAN) and silica fibers. The best results of the splice loss is 1.58dB, and the results can be improved if the Fusion Splicer with more stable arc power. Then glue connection is used to fix the splicing point, and the minimal loss we measured is 0.14dB. The above results show that it is possible to connect the fluoride and silica fibers by using Fusion Splicer with appropriate arc power and arc time, which will make the fabrication of these splices simpler and easier to be handled.
