Paper Abstract

The special optical fibers, with large mode field, are developed for fabricating high power optical fibers passive components. If a conventional fiber optical laser is used as optical source, the coupling efficiency between special optical fibers and conventional single mode fibers (SMFs) need to be improved. We investigate the specialty optical fibers property and its effect on the coupling efficiency using an electric arc fusion splicer. Improper splicing parameters can lead to coupling efficiency sharply decreased. Several splicing methods are utilized, and all the results are proposed. Comparing these results, we find a set of splicing parameters for reducing the scattering loss at the splice point. It was demonstrated that properly splicing parameters can make coupling efficiency greatly increased; furthermore, a balance between splicing strength and coupling loss was achieved.
