Paper Abstract

The mechanical performance of fusion splices is quite sensitive to splicing equipment and practices. We observed degradation in fiber strength during fusion splicing by examining effects of splicing practices, fiber types and environmental conditions. Conducting appropriate mechanical testing is therefore essential to understanding the failure mechanisms and assuring the mechanical reliability of fusion splices
