Abstract:

A coupling device is provided for a multi optical-fiber cable in which the bared free ends of the individual fibers to be coupled or terminated are geometrically oriented in a substantially focusing relation to each other. This enables the propagated light beam patterns being transmitted through each fiber end to be concentrated by being superimposed substantially at a common focal plane thereby enhancing the intensity of light being available for transmission across the coupling.
