Abstract

See full text

Optical fiber coating stripping through relayed thermal radiation is disclosed. A heat source is provided that is configured to emit thermal radiation when activated. A relay system is provided that is configured to receive the emitted thermal radiation from the heat source and relay the emitted thermal radiation to a heating region. For example, the relay system may be configured to relay (i.e., re-direct) the thermal radiation to a concentrated heating region. The heat source and relay system are configured such that thermal radiation relayed by the relay system causes the temperature in the heating region to reach or exceed a vaporization or thermal decomposition temperature of a coating(s) of an optical fiber to be stripped. When an optical fiber is disposed in the heating region, and the heat source is activated, a coating(s) of the optical fiber decomposes thus stripping the coating(s) from the optical fiber.
