Fiber waveguides: a novel technique for investigating attenuation characteristics

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Light from a pulsed GaAs injection laser is coupled into a glass fiber via a taper coupler. The time dependence of the light backscattered within the fiber as the pulse travels down the waveguide is recorded. From these data the total loss may be determined, as well as an estimate of the scattering and mode mixing characteristics of the fiber.
