Paper Abstract

Numerous technical papers have addressed the design (precision alignment) concepts employed within Fiber Optic connectors. Manufacturers have expounded upon the relationship of lateral, gap and angular misalignment and the resulting coupling loss.1 These loss mechanisms are within the control (and are the responsibility) of the manufacturer, yet he cannot completely control the optical performance of his product. The total power coupled (between two mated fibers) is also a function of certain fiber parameters.
