Jointing loss in single-mode fibres
The jointing loss of single-mode fibres is mainly dependent on their numerical apertures, and is largely independent of normalised frequency and fibre diameter. The letter presents simple loss predictions as an aid for practical design work of single-mode fibre joints.
