Abstract

In this paper we report the splicing losses of a single mode optical fiber at different humid conditions and at different places of Bangladesh Railway West Zone (BRWZ). The location of the splicing points and their losses for a single mode step index optical fiber have been measured by optical time domain reflectometer before re-splicing. Fusion splicer is used to re-splice these points at different humid conditions to analyze the splicing loss dependency. From this study it has been found that different humid conditions affect the splicing losses to a large extent.
