Paper Abstract

To-day, fiber optics' low linear attenuation (0.5 dB/km at 1300 nm for fibers with dia 50 pm index gradient) enhances the growing significance of junction loss. Indeed, the transmission system's range is 2 km shorter, which is generated by every 1 dB connection! The optic connector is a compact device allowing links between 2 fiber optics or between 1 fiber and an optoelectronic component to be generated or cut off repeatedly while providing minimal transmission's crosstalk. After studying the various characteristics generating crosstalk, the alternatives selected by RADIALL relating to miniature optic connectors shall be considered.
