Abstract:

The overall goal of this Phase II project is to design, develop and prototype a hand-held, Go/No Go testing device to objectively evaluate the complete health of a fiber optic terminus endface. The proposed 3D Interferometer Probe system incorporates a novel optical phase detecting (i.e., interferometric) technology into a very compact and robust imaging probe, designed to enable simultaneous defect and 3D surface geometry evaluation. The compact form factor of the Optical Probe is physically compatible with existing and proposed MIL standard connector designs. A portable data processing unit (DPU) receives and evaluates the optical data from the probe and displays clear Go/No Go results for the termini being tested. An Alpha prototype will be built as part of the Phase II base program and a Beta prototype will be built and delivered as part of the Phase II option. A study to quantify the effects of fiber protrusion/recession within fiber optic termini on optical signal quality will be designed and conducted in parallel with prototype development.
