Title: Method for calibrating discharge heat energy of optical fiber splicing device

Abstract: The object of the present invention is to provide a method of accurately calibrating discharge heat energy produced during fusion splicing of two optical fibers by heating the optical fibers arranged with the intentional fiber cladding axes offset; in order to achieve the object, the present invention provides a method of calibrating discharge heat energy used in the optical fiber fusion splicing device wherein a discharge heating energy is measured based on a change of the fiber cladding axes offset.
