Paper Abstract

Splices and demountable connectors are a necessary component in optical-fiber systems as they allow for flexibility in both the installation and maintenance of optical-fiber links. Permanent joints (i.e., splices) tend to have less effect on system performance than remateable connectors; however, they are both capable of profoundly influencing system performance. Joints generally affect both the attenuation and bandwidth of an optical fiber link and thus require careful study.
