Paper Abstract

A more complete theory of the splice loss for single-mode fibers is presented in this paper. According to the optical waveguide theory and Gaussian beam theory, the optimum analytic relation expression between the step-index fiber parameters and that of its mode field is derived and the calculation formula of the total splice loss is also derived. The total splice loss caused by offset, tilt, end-separation and core diameter non-matching in the same time consists of their four intersection items. The derived formulas can be used to predict and obtain low splice loss for single-mode fibers.
