This 3-hour course is the third in a series of five courses about fiber optic cable systems. The series covers fiber optics from basic light theory transmission to cables, connectors, testing, and signal transmission.

This course, Fiber Optics III - Connectors, describes fiber optic splices, connectors, couplers and the types of connections they form in systems. It includes a discussion on the types of extrinsic and intrinsic coupling losses, fiber alignment and fiber mismatch problems, and fiber optic mechanical and fusion splices.
