Paper Abstract

We present results of attempts to apply a conventional fiber parameter field-test equipment for identification of multimode fibers with high differential mode delay (DMD). Backscattering traces, obtained by optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) with the single-mode optical unit, and refractive index profile form, reproduced by image processing of lighted fiber end-face, were compared with pulse forms, registered by introduced DMD measurement system. Silica graded-index multimode fibers 50/125 of different generations were considered. Comparing results of high DMD fiber identification by OTDR, video diagnostics system and DMD measurement system are represented.
