Paper Abstract

Reliability is mandatory in all parts of a Fiber Optic System and especially in the interconnections - an electronically passive component yet mechanically actuated numerous times throughout the service life. The key loss mechanisms and evaluation criteria are discussed with comparisons of the butt-joint and lens type terminations for relative strengths.
