QUESTION:

How residue based contamination cause signal loss between a mated connector pair?

 

ANSWER:

Residues that enter the signal path are changing the transmission medium the light signal travels through. The residue will have different refractive index than the glass core of the fibre and will cause some of the signal’s wavelengths to disperse.

The signal will experience a chromatic aberration effect happens because the residues will have different refractive indices.
