Paper Abstract

The increasing industry requirements for reduced back-reflection (also called return loss) from fiber optic connectors has required the connectorization and cable assembly manufacturers to develop advanced end finishes for singlemode connectors. Since most telecommunications systems use components from a variety of manufactures, the intermateability of the connectors from different vendors is a major concern. This paper presents the results of a study to measure this intermateability for singlemode FC style connectors
