Paper Abstract

High strength, low loss chlorine-hydrogen flame fusion (single mode optical) fiber splicing is discussed. This particular technology, developed at AT&T Bell Laboratories, is well suited to undersea cable applications. The strength and loss data initially achieved at one location has been reproduced at another AT&T Bell Laboratories facility. In addition, it is shown that a technique is available to produce predictably high loss splices for the purpose of placing line buildouts in a fiber span. The low loss splices and optical line buildouts do not require signal monitoring during production.
