Launching of Power and Coupling in Optical Fiber

SOURCE TO FIBRE POWER COUPLING:-
– Nowadays many source suppliers offer a short optical fiber attached to power coupling sources.– This small optical fiber is known as a fly lead or pigtail. .

– These reduce the power launching problem.

FIBER SPLICING:-

It is a permanent bond between two fibers.

– These bond is made by using fusion splicing.

– Temporary splices is necessary when one is making or troubleshooting.

OPTICAL FIBER CONNECTORS:-

– They are made by combinations of two or three letters.
– There are different types of optical fiber connectors like:-

ST connector- They are used in applications like data communication and telecommunication.

SC connector

-It stands for subscriber connector or square connector.It is widely used in LAN,WAN and telecommunication networks.
-it is also used in simplex or duplex configurations.

FC connector-

–It stands for Fiber channel and is used in fiber channel applications like terminating the jumper.
– It is works on thread coupling mechanism.


LC connector

-It is used for high-density fiber optic connectivity.

-It aligns the fibre core to achieve low insertion loss.

– It is available in both simplex and duplex mode..

    Great! My questions already been answered because of this blog.. Thanks for the information!

    please visit

    coupling is the important technique in optical communication. this is a good article to explain it clearly

  7. Dinesh says:

    Really before reading this article i dont have any knowledge about the connectors but with a shot look i gain knowledge about the connectors like
    SC connector
    LC connector and
    FC connector

    so this article is very useful and the questions are also challenging
