L-com  explains Fibre Optic Connector Types

There are several types of fibre optic connectors available today. The most common are: ST, SC, FC, MT-RJ and LC style connectors.

All of these types of connectors can be used with either multimode or singlemode fibre.

There are three types of polishes which can be applied to a fibre connector: PC or Physical contact, UPC or Ultra Physical contact and APC or Angled Physical contact.

Each polish type exhibits a different level of back reflection. Back reflection is a measure of the light reflected off the end of a fibre connector. This light is measured in decibels.

For certain applications, the amount of back reflection on a fibre connector is critical.
