Paper Abstract

Differential mode delay (DMD), chromatic dispersion, and modal dispersion measurement techniques for a multimode optical fiber based on optical frequency domain reflectometry are presented. We have used the principle of a conventional OFDR with a tunable external cavity laser and a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. We have compared our measurement results with those obtained using a traditional time-domain measurement method.
