Paper Abstract

In this work an analysis of one-way and two-way reflectometric measurements of splices of single mode fibers with different parameters has been made. Results of splicing conditions optimization for standard fibers MC SMF (Matched Cladding Single Mode Fiber - G.652), and with non-zero dispersion NZDS SMF (Non-Zero Dispersion Shifted Single Mode Fiber - G.655) have been presented. On the basis of one-way reflectometric measurements a method explicitly proving the existence of a transient area in the spliced fibers has been presented. Reference to norms and recommendations concerning one-way and two-way reflectometric measurements of telecommunication fibers splices have also been made.
