Improved dynamic-range single-mode OTDR at 1.3µm

Gold, M.P. and Hartog, A.H. (1984) Improved dynamic-range single-mode OTDR at 1.3µm Electronics Letters, 20, (7), pp. 285-287. (doi:10.1049/el:19840195).

Record type: Article


A high-performance single-mode optical time-domain reflector (OTDR) incorporating a new low-noise receiver design utilising a PIN diode detector and a transimpedance amplifier is described. With a 1.3 µm laser diode source a dynamic range of 30 dB one way is achieved, and using an Nd:YAG laser source the dynamic range is 41 dB one way.
