Fiber optic fusion splicing is the process of joining two bare fiber optic strands. The process of fiber optic welding involves preparing the fiber optic cable by removing the out jacketing and buffer layers, cleaning the bare glass, and introducing them to a high heat source that bonds them together. Fusion splicing has become a vital part of the telecommunications industry as the most reliable, long-term method of splicing fiber optic cables while offering minimal amount of light loss (attenuation).
