In Fiber optic systems, any Loss of Optical Power at a splice. Note: A practical splice, of physically realizable fibers, has losses attributable to a number of mechanisms, some of which are intrinsic to the fibers, and some of which are intrinsic to the method or device being used to join them.
See insertion loss.
