Paper Abstract

Single mode fiber communication systems and the associated technologies are developing. With regard to fibers, final decisions have yet to be'reached as to which parameters are most critical for system performance. This paper will discuss the measurement of three fiber parameters which have been identified as required by system designers. These are: attenuation rate at the wavelength of operation, "effective cutoff wavelength," and mode field diameter. Special emphasis will be placed upon the modifications required to indus-trialize the laboratory measurement techniques to implement "state of the art" measurements in the factory.
