Abstract

1447469 Light guides NORTHERN ELECTRIC CO Ltd 14 March 1975 [20 March 1974] 10822/75 Heading G2J A connector 10 for connecting optical fibres comprises a housing 11, 12, first bore 18 extending axially from one end of the housing for the reception of a first single coated fibre 22 and a second bore 15 extending axially from the other end of the housing for the reception of a second single coated fibre 16 the bores each being of a diameter to fit closely on the outer circumferance of the coated fibres. A further axial bore 21 connects the first and second bores the further bore fitting closely on the uncoated fibres. A convergent surface 19 extends from the inner end of the first bore to one end of the further bore and a convergent surface 20 extends from the inner end of the second bore to the other end of the further bore, the pieces of the convergent surface being at the ends of the further bore. A connector is also described which joins a plurality of single coated fibres.
