Paper Abstract

Temperature and humidity tests were performed on commercial grade fiber optic couplers, connectors, splices and optical,fiber. Both singlemode and multimode components were tested. Temperatures ranged from -54°C to +65°C or +85°C depending on the component application. In the humidity tests the relative humidity was maintained at greater than 95 percent above 20°C. Changes in optical transmittance of varying degrees and permanent damage were observed and recorded.
