On the theory of backscattering in single-mode optical fibres

Hartog, A.H. and Gold, M.P. (1984) On the theory of backscattering in single-mode optical fibres Journal of Lightwave Technology, 2, (2), pp. 76-82. (doi:10.1109/JLT.1984.1073598).

Record type: Article


A new theory of backscattering in single-mode fibers is presented. It allows backscatter waveforms to be predicted for fibers of any refractive-index profile or scattering-loss distribution. The results agree with experimental data and provide confirmation of an earlier, more restricted theory.
