Virtual reference interferometry: theory and experiment

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

This work presents a detailed theoretical description of using virtual reference interferometry (VRI) for the measurement of chromatic dispersion in short fibers and components. Special consideration is given to the unique ability to reduce the bandwidth required for a measurement, to measure components in cascade, and to measure both narrowband and ultrashort devices. Measurement parameters for VRI-based systems are developed to provide an understanding of the constraints and limitations of the technique. Experimental validation of theory is then provided.
