Mass Manufacturable 180 $^{\circ}$-Bend Single-Mode Fiber Socket Using Hole-Assisted Low Bending Loss Fiber

Abstract

High-efficiency low-cost field-installable 180deg-bend single-mode fiber (SMF) sockets are promising new fiber connector components that can facilitate network element footprint reduction and allow for more comfortable connector handling in the field. We present a novel type of small-form-factor 180deg coupling SMF socket component, yielding coupling losses… (More)
