Paper Abstract

The design and performance of optical cables, connector hardware and communication systems are governed by the light transmission and coupling characteristics of waveguide fibers. These characteristics depend upon waveguide design and materials as well as manufacturing tolerances. Measurement methods and limitations are discussed, and use and interpretation of waveguide specifications in designing optical links and predicting overall performance are shown.
