Abstract
The developed underwater mateable fibreoptic connector prevents contamination of the optical coupling endfaces, withstands the hydrostatic pressure and provide optical alignment with a repeatability of 0,1 micron. Optical interfaces and high precision parts are protected by silicone grease, both in a mated and demated position. The measured transmission loss using single mode fibre is below 0,5 dB after ten matings in a mixture of water and 1% drilling mud. Hydrostatic pressure of 200 bars did not have any influence on connector performance.
