Abstract

A highly efficient splicing technique for single-mode fibers is investigated. Several techniques are presented for realizing both a highly precise splice loss estimation and excellent working efficiency. The techniques markedly simplify the splice procedure and improve working efficiency. A monitoring length of 60 km, a splice loss measurement accuracy of plus or minus 0. 01 db a fusion splice time of 2. 5 min, and an average splice loss of 0. 04 db are satisfactorily achieved in laboratory experiments.
