Paper Abstract

The precise far-field scanning measurement is used for determination of a spot-size wavelength dependence of real single-mode (SM) fibers. Both Gauss's and Petermann's formulas for mode field radius (MFR) calculation are used and compared. The results of spot- size measurement by transverse-offset (TO), knife-edge-scan (KE) in far field, and far-field pattern (FFP) techniques are compared.
