Conduit, A.J., Payne, D.N., Hartog, A.H. and Gold, M.P. (1981) Optical fibre diameter variations and their effect on backscatter loss measurements Electronics Letters, 17, (8), pp. 307-308. (doi:10.1049/el:19810215).

Record type: Article


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.
