Term Main definition
Diameter mismatch loss
The loss of power that occurs when one fiber transmits to another and the transmitting fiber has a diameter greater than the receiving fiber. It can occur at any type of coupling where the fiber/coupling sizes are mismatched: fiber-to-fiber, fiber-to-device, fiber-to-detector, or sourceto- fiber. Fiber-optic cables and connectors should closely match the size of fiber required by the equipment.
