Description/Abstract

Diameter variations in optical fibres are shown to affect backscatter loss measurements by a mechanism which primarily involves attenuation of the backward travelling light. A simple model which predicts anticorrelated loss features when measured from opposite ends of the fibre is verified experimentally.
