Paper Abstract

The optimization of the fused splice between two identical PCFs as well as SMF•28 with different MFD PCFs made using the filament fusion with continuum laser illumination is reported. For identical PCFs splice loss of 0.15±0.04 dB @ 1.55 μm has been obtained. The SMF with PCF (MFD = 6.0 μm) splice losses are lower than 0.40 dB in comparison with the reported dependences in spectral range 1.51-1.63μm. Moreover, the splice SMF with extremely small core PCF is also presented. The discussed data has shown that such SMF-PCF splice is suitable for construction of a patch cord for measurement devices.
