Title: OPTICAL CONNECTOR AND OPTICAL CONNECTOR PRODUCTION METHOD
Abstract:
Disclosed is an optical connector that is one of a pair of optical connectors that face and are connected to each other in a first direction. The optical connector comprises: a ferrule that holds an optical fiber and that exposes an end surface of the optical fiber from a ferrule end surface that is toward the other optical connecter in the first direction; and a ferrule cap that covers the ferrule. The ferrule cap has a light transmission part that transmits a light path that extends from the end surface of the optical fiber. Excluding the light transmission part, one end of the ferrule cap is positioned toward the other optical connecter in the first direction relative to the end surface of the optical fiber and to the light transmission part.
