Abstract

By using an optical time domain reflectometer a new measurement technique which allows displaying the length dependence of the fiber attenuation by analyzing backscattered light has been developed. This paper compares the backscatter and insertion-loss techniques. In addition, results of several experiments which illustrate the versatility of an optical time domain reflectometer are described.
