Long fibre grating characterisation using low coherence reflectometry

Volanthen, M., Geiger, H., Cole, M.J., Laming, R.I. and Dakin, J.P. (1996) Long fibre grating characterisation using low coherence reflectometry At Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO Europe), Germany. 08 - 13 Sep 1996.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


Optical fibre dispersion compensation, and distributed fibre sensors, make use of long fibre gratings. Their reflectivity and time delay are usually characterised as a function of wavelength using an expensive tunable laser. We have recently achieved similar results with a new low-cost low-coherence reflectometry technique, which is related to earlier techniques for optical fibre characterisation
