Deviations from ideal alignment and end finish can result in lossy fiber optic connections. Models of amodal fiber-to-fiber interconnects (where the optical energy has no modal structure) commonly used by connection system designers assume independence of the misalignment parameters. This paper describes a method of studying the interaction of these parameters using both computer modeling and laboratory data. The initial results show a coupled relationship existing between several pairs of misalignment parameters. In these instances the net loss due to combinational misalignments was significantly different than the linear addition of the individual loss values.
