Paper Abstract

An appropriate setting of the OTDR can help to improve the calibration reducing the uncertainty of measurements. We present some criterions for setting the Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) for its distance scale calibration by means of a Recirculting Delay Line (RDL). The evaluation of some parameters such as location of the event, span of measurements, distance range and pulse width were carry out experimentally using a RDL calibrating system.
