For high power connectivity, where epoxy-less free-standing SMA’s is used, most companies use supportive wax like CrystalBond in the SMA connector to prevent the fiber from breaking during polishing while it need to be removed afterwards which is a time consuming costly operation. Using a laser cleaving operation eliminate the need of using the supportive wax as the fiber protrude very little from the SMA tip allowing directly a polishing operation when a high stability polisher like Domaille Engineering is used. The time reduction is significant while less lapping film is consumed.
