How many methods of cross sectioning fiber optic connectors exist?



There are currently three methods of looking inside a fiber optic connector:

  • Non- Destructive X Ray
  • Non- Destructive Sonar
  • Destructive Cross Sectioning

These methods help engineering determine cause and effect of failure of the fiber optic connector and monitor assembly process of the connector.

All three methods have advantages and disadvantages and can be found in the blog:  Cross Sectioning of Fiber Optic Connectors: the three methods, advantages and disadvantages
