  • Patent number: 10684434
    Abstract: A flexible optical ribbon and associated systems and methods of manufacturing are provided. The ribbon includes a plurality of optical transmission elements and an inner layer comprising a cross-linked polymer material and an outer surface. The outer surface of the inner layer includes first areas having first concentrations of uncrosslinked polymer material and second areas having second concentrations of uncrosslinked polymer material. The first concentrations are greater than the second concentrations. The ribbon includes an outer polymer layer having an inner surface interfacing with the outer surface of the inner layer. The outer polymer layer has a higher level of bonding to the inner layer at the first areas than at the second areas due to the ability of the outer polymer material to bond or crosslink with the larger numbers of uncrosslinked polymer material in the first areas.

  • Patent number: 10610970
    Abstract: 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.
