Abstract : This paper discusses a field splicing ssystem for single-mode optical fiber. The system consists of a specialized single-mode fusion splicing set and an optical power monitoring system used to assist in aligning the fibers. The prerequisites for fusion splicing of single-mode fiber are discussed. The fusion equipment and optical power monitoring system are described in detail and their operation is discussed. Finally, the performance of system is reported. (Author)
