Mass fusion splice without accurate fiber-core alignment for splicing single-mode fiber ribbon in subscriber optical cable is discussed. Using the surface tension effect in the fusion process positively and suppressing the fiber length variance among fibers in the ribbon, low splice loss of about 0.1 dB was achieved for fibers with small core eccentricity.
