Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0049439A1] Apparatus for abrading an optical fibre (4) has a wheel (10) or roller having an abrasive surface. There are means (8, 12) for holding an optical fibre against the abrasive surface, a transmitter (6) operative to transmit light into the optical fibre, a receiver (34, 36) operative to detect the light transmitted through a region of the optical fibre to be abraded. In use, the receiver is operative to provide a signal dependent on the level of light received during abrasion.
