Title: METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING OPTICAL CONNECTION COMPONENT
Abstract:
The present embodiment makes it possible to lower the height of an optical connection component that includes a bent optical fiber having a bent shape and a fiber fixing component in a safer and more stable manner compared to the prior art. The formation of a bent portion using the fiber fixing component obliquely disposed and the heating of the bent portion are repeated a plurality of times for the optical fiber having the fiber fixing component movably attached thereto before the fiber fixing component is secured to the bent optical fiber. During that time, the movement of the optical fiber and the heating of the bent portion are alternately repeated in order to form a plurality of the bent portions where the stress is released along the longitudinal direction of the optical fiber.
