Paper Abstract

Back scattering method is the most universal method applied to control fiber optic transmission line characteristics. This method is recommended by ICU-T and national standards of Russia. It is widely used during determination of regularity and attenuation of optical fibers, irregularity localization and its loss, evaluation of length of installed fiber optic lines, measurements of attenuation both individual sections and whole optical line, control of delivery length etc. Thus an error estimation of considered method during measurements of splice loss is necessary. Theoretical and experimental analysis of back scattering method error during splice loss measurements is represented.
