A new stuffing-pulling fusion technique for the mass fusion splicing of single-mode fibers is presented, where the fiber spliced-region is pulled after the fiber end faces are fused and stuffed to each other. The characteristic feature of this technique is that the stuffing and pulling strokes are varied, based on the observation of fiber end face gaps for every splice. This technique can reduce splice loss to a half in comparison with the conventional method.
