High-resolution measurement of diameter variations in optical fibres by the backscatter method

High-resolution measurement of diameter variations in optical fibres by the backscatter method
High-resolution measurement of diameter variations in optical fibres by the backscatter method
The backscatter signal measured with high resolution from optical fibres with complex diameter variations is shown to follow precisely the diameter profile. The local attenuation which is anticorrelated from opposite ends of the fibre is compared with a simple theoretical model.

Abstract

The backscatter signal measured with high resolution from optical fibres with complex diameter variations is shown to follow precisely the diameter profile. The local attenuation which is anticorrelated from opposite ends of the fibre is compared with a simple theoretical model.
