Measurement of backscatter factor in single-mode fibres

Gold, M.P. and Hartog, A.H. (1981) Measurement of backscatter factor in single-mode fibres Electronics Letters, 17, (25), pp. 965-966. (doi:10.1049/el:19810674).

Record type: Article


The ratio of the backscattered power to the input pulse energy is measured in single-mode optical fibres. The results provide confirmation of single-mode backscatter theory and show that measurement of this ratio can be used to determine alpha(s), the Rayleigh scatter coefficient.
