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.
