26 April 1989 Results Of Large Scale Environmental Testing On Fiber Optic Couplers
Author Affiliations +
In this paper details and results will be given of the performance of fiber optic couplers when subjected to a variety of environmental tests. These tests include a high humidity/high temperature life test, excessive temperature cycling, vibration and altitude experiments. Results have shown that passive components can be fabricated and packaged to operate reliably under many adverse conditions with negligible change in optical performance.
