Fiber connectors using single-mode fibers have been fabricated with an average connection loss of 0.32 dB without index matching. All dimensions of the connector parts, including those of the ferrules and fibers require only low precision. A special lathe is used, in a simple operation, to eliminate the errors of the ferrule-terminated fiber assembly.
