Paper Abstract

Industrial applications of polymer optical fibers (POF) require a high reliability of the optical data transmission. Therefore it is necessary to investigate the behavior of POF under extreme environmental stressing. For these investigations specific measuring equipment is necessary. The design and practical applications of a multiplexer for optical transmission measurements and of a high-resolution OTDR for damage analysis are described.
