Abstract

This paper presents a study on optical fiber and connector ferrule assembly design optimization aimed at minimizing modal interference in field-mountable single-mode fiber connectors that utilize a ferrule mounted short fiber stubs and integrated splices. A theoretical model for analyzing the modal interference is proposed and verified experimentally. It is shown that modal interference can be reduced by optimizing both the fiber design and its surrounding material.
