Optical Metrology for Wavelength-Division-Mulitplexed Fiber Communications

In response to rapid changes in fiber-optic technology, the Optoelectronics Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology has been developing techniques and standards to support the measurement of optical components and subsystems used in wavelength-division-multiplexed optical fiber communication systems. Current projects include the development of wavelength calibration transfer standards and the accurate measurement of spectral response, dispersion, and polarization dependence of optical fiber and components.
