Paper Abstract

A low loss, field installable, expanded beam fiber optic connector has been developed for both commercial and military use. The design includes a lens insert capable of producing losses less than 0.7 dB and can be easily installed in the field without polishing of fiber ends or use of index matching fluid at the interface between connectors. The connector has been designed for single fiber or multiple fiber applications as well as connectors with a combination of electrical and fiber optic contacts.
