Paper Abstract

The methods of splicing optical fibers are considered in two broad categories: (1) fusion splices; and (2) mechanical splices. Various types of fusion splicing equipment and mechanical splice alignment means are described, with characheristics and cost compared. The information in this overview of fiber optic splices provides a basis for identifying which splicing methods to use for particular applications.
