A new approach to splice-loss monitoring using long-range OTDR

Gold, M.P., Hartog, A.H. and Payne, D.N. (1984) A new approach to splice-loss monitoring using long-range OTDR Electronics Letters, 20, (8), pp. 338-340. (doi:10.1049/el:19840230).

Record type: Article


Absolute splice-loss measurements on single-mode optical fibre are performed from one cable end only using specially developed long-range OTDR equipment in conjunction with a reflector at the far end of the fibre. Active splice-alignment with single-mode OTDR is also demonstrated.
