Accepted21 Mar 1984


This paper describes the construction of a multiway Optical Fibre connector suitable for harsh environments, based on a ruggedised marine connector (Patt 608) shell, and employs expanded-beam principles. The connector utilises an array of sapphire sphere lenses force-fitted into a metal plate forming a flat mating surface with all the precision parts protected behind the lenses.
