The 15 second video clip shows two single-mode optical fibers being joined by fusion process.  The fibers have been prepared by removing the colored coating, then trimmed by a precision "cleaving tool", yielding a clean fiber end which is perfectly square with the sides of the fiber.  

As the video plays, you will see three main events- 1. as the fibers come close together, an initial, rapid arc burns away any dust particles; 2. the fibers are brought together and joined with a fusing arc; 3. the fused fibers are displayed as a perfectly continuous fiber.  This all happens in real time, so watch closely.  Replay several times in needed.
