Paper Abstract

We propose that without rapid advances, optical testing of optical components will continue to be a major obstacle in the economical deployment of optical communications. We explore the communications-system drivers of these changes, the implications of these changes on the test process and apparatus, and identify certain obstacles which must be overcome. In some cases, solution paths are being identified, and we outline a number of these.
