See full text

A method of polishing an optical fiber that extends through a ferrule involves: (a) determining a polishing depth by measuring the distance between an end of the optical fiber and an end face of the ferrule with an interferometer; (b) performing a polishing step based on the the polishing depth to remove material from the end of the optical fiber; and (c) repeating steps (a) and (b) until the end of the optical fiber is within a predetermined distance of the end face of the ferrule. Related systems for polishing an optical fiber that extends through a ferrule are also disclosed.
