Abstract

See full text

A method of forming an optical surface on an end portion of an optical fiber comprises inserting the optical fiber through a ferrule bore of a ferrule so that the end portion extends past an end face on the ferrule. At least one laser beam is emitted from at least one laser and directed to the end face of the ferrule. The at least one laser beam is shaped into an ellipse and comprises at least 90 percent linearly-polarized light incident on the end face of the ferrule as S-polarized light. The at least one laser is operated so that the S-polarized light reflects off the end face of the ferrule and cleaves the end portion of the optical fiber.
