What we believe to be a new instrument for measuring the end-face geometrical parameters of fiber connectors is described. In this apparatus, a Mirau-type interferometric objective is employed to measure a small area of the connector end face and generate an interferogram corresponding to the surface profile. Various new technologies are used to ensure excellent performance and high measurement repeatability. A multipoint method is proposed to adjust the inclination of the physical contact… CONTINUE READING
