Fiber fuse, a thermal destruction phenomenon, which propagates toward optical sources and permanently damages optical fiber cores, connection points (connectors and splicing) as well as optical components sets the ultimate input optical power limits into optical fibers, thus determining the ultimate data capacity in optical fiber communication systems. This chapter describes basic properties of fiber fuse, followed by that of optical communication fibers, its detection and halting (blocking) methods, fiber fuse-based incidence as well as fiber fuse-tolerant fibers. Lastly, safety issues of optical communication systems from the viewpoint of IEC laser safety standardization are described.
