Abstract

Misalignment of the openings in the frame and the terminal fixture could cause significant bending stresses in an optical fiber located within this frame. We developed simple and easy-to-use formulas which enable one to evaluate these stresses and determine the minimum allowable length of the clamped portion of the fiber for the given misalignment. Our stress analysis model considers the favorable effect of the fiber coating compliance. The results can be of help in the physical design of optical interconnects with misalignments.
