Optical fiber connector terminates the end of an optical fiber, and enables quicker connection and disconnection than splicing. The connectors mechanically couple and align the cores of fibers so that light can pass.

Optical fiber connector terminates the end of an optical fiber, and enables quicker connection and disconnection than splicing.

The connectors mechanically couple and align the cores of fibers so that light can pass.

Most optical fiber connectors are spring-loaded: The fiber endfaces of the two connectors are pressed together, resulting in a direct glass to glass or plastic to plastic contact, avoiding any glass to air or plastic to air interfaces, which would result in higher connector losses.
