Abstract

Even though the melting temperatures of silica and fluoride glass are very different, a new thermal splicing method to join these fibers is presented here. The lowest attenuation achieved was about 0.2 dB. Moreover, this thermal splice was stabilized, packed and inserted in a simple fiber laser setup.
