(FR) DISPOSITFS, SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS D'ALIGNEMENT DE FIBRES OPTIQUES
Abstract
(EN)
The present disclosure relates to methods, devices and systems for co-axially aligning first and second optical fibers to provide an optical coupling between the first and second optical fibers. A fiber engagement element is used to force the first and second optical fibers into an alignment groove.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne des procédés, des dispositifs et des systèmes d'alignement coaxial de première et seconde fibres optiques pour fournir un couplage optique entre les première et seconde fibres optiques. Un élément de mise en prise de fibre est utilisé pour forcer les première et seconde fibres optiques dans une rainure d'alignement.
