15 January 1986 An Epoxyless Polishless Fiber Optic Connector
Author Affiliations +
A field installable, low loss single mode fiber optic connector has been developed. A post-assembly cleaving tool and plastic captivator permit assembly of the connector in less than 5 minutes. Floating and ultra precise alignment sleeve and ceramic capillary provide losses less than 1 dB and repeatability less than 0.3 dB.
