Abstract
In this paper, we describe the design and performance of a newly developed single-mode multifiber connector which employs an injection molded mechanically transferable (MT) type ferrule and a quick assembly technique. The connector is designed to be compatible with the MT connector. The ferrule is made using injection molded thermoplastic resin. This makes the ferrule production process easier, and also contributes to cost effectiveness. The ferrule can be assembled without polishing or heating by fixing cleaved fibers with a quick hardening adhesive. The ferrule assembly time is only 3 minutes. The fabricated 8-fiber ribbon connector exhibits a low insertion loss of 0.21 dB and a return loss of >45 dB with index-matching.
