The optical waveguide is becoming increasingly important. Its capability can only be put to widespread practical use, when a simple and reliable method for joining fibers is also available. Siemens has developed a completely new fusion splicer for multimode silica glass optical waveguides in single fiber buffer and minibundle buffer design. (See Figure 8.) The following objectives were pursued: . minimum splice loss . suitability for field use . a self-contained unit in a portable case . semi-automatic . easy maintenance service . independence from AC mains voltage and instant readiness for operation The units constructed according to these specifications are mass-produced. Under laboratory conditions and in the field, they have performed reliably. Using fibers of the same type, splice losses averaging 0.1 dB were achieved.
