Paper Abstract

Before optical systems are fully operational, repeatable multi-channel quick-disconnect couplings must be a reality. This paper describes the performance and characteristics achieved with a connector for medium loss optical waveguides, "medium loss" being taken to mean 1000 to 100 dB/km and having a numerical aperature of around 0.50. The connectors described are conventional MIL-C-83723, modified to accept optical ferrules in lieu of the standard electrical contacts.
