Fiber optic connectors are the most basic optical passive components for optical fiber communication systems. The basic specification requirements for them are low insertion loss (IL) and high return loss (RL), i.e. low back reflection (BR). However, as the most widely employed components, low cost and easy connection are equal important as the specifications.
Alignment of Optical Fibers The core size of the single mode fiber (SMF) is about 8~10μm. The two connected fibers must be precisely aligned to ensure low loss. Fig.1 shows how much the lateral offset between two optical fibers influence the IL. The curve is exponential. A small lateral offset such as 2.4μm will introduce IL of 1dB. Thus the lateral offset between the two fibers must be kept <0.5μm for SMF fiber optic connectors.
Local time March 5 to 7, 2019, OFC opened in San Diego Convention and Exhibition Center, California, USA. OFC is recognized as an international event with the highest specifications, the largest scale, the longest history, the strongest professionalism and the greatest influence in the field of optical communication. HYC and its new products were on display and suddenly became a highlight on the show.
