This patent discloses a portable device for coupling optical fibers consisting of an insulative block so designed as to allow a number of optical fibers to come together, a piezoelectric generating means secured to the block and connected to the piezoelectric generator so that optical fibers will be brought together at a point between the electrodes. Electricity generated causes an arc across the electrodes which generates sufficient heat to join the optical fibers. Author
