Explanation of Insertion Loss and Return Loss

Insertion Loss and Return Loss are key optical parameters of of polished fiber optic connectors. These two parameters are used to evaluate the quality of fiber optic patch cables, pigtails, PON splitters etc. Insertion loss refers to the optical power loss caused when a fiber optic connector coupled with another to form a fiber optic [...]
