Cleaved optical fiber end-faces

Introduction of Fiber Optic Cleaving

As we know, in most cases, when a fiber is used or spliced, it is essential to prepare clean ends. Cleaving, an essential step of making fiber ends clean, though it’s a simple mean, it works surprisingly well, at least for standard glass fibers. Thus, I want to share something about the cleaving in this post today. Understanding of Cleaving…

Cut Out Costly Mistakes With Fiber Optic Cleaver

To get good fiber optic splices or terminations, especially when using the pre-polished connectors with internal splices, it is extremely important to cleave the fiber properly. Imprecisely cleaving of the fiber ends, therefore, will result in improper matching. So, the end of the fiber must be cleaved to a 90-degree flat end when it is prepared for a connector or splice. However,…

How to Use and Maintain The Fusion Splicing More Efficiently?

What is Fusion Splicer? Fusion splicer may be the act of joining two optical fibers end-to-end using heat. The thing is to fuse both the fibers together in such a way that light passing with the fibers is not scattered or reflected back from the splice, and thus the splice, as well as the region surrounding it, are almost as strong…
