Precision measurements on optical fibers

Douglas L. Franzen

As the optical fiber industry matures, the precision and accuracy of measurements improve to further reduce cost and enhance performance. The divestiture of AT&T has resulted in a multivendor marketplace that must rely on common measurement techniques to ensure product compatibility. Such a set of voluntary standards has been a goal of the Telecommunication Industries Association (TIA). Their standards provide a system of documentation to efficiently procure fiber and other lightwave components.
