Paper Abstract

In this invited tutorial review paper on single-mode fiber measurements, I discuss the various methods used to characterize the following important transmission parameters of single-mode fibers: attenuation, cut-off wavelength, mode-field diameter and chromatic dispersion. Single-mode fibers are being used increasingly in long-haul links and are even being considered for subscriber networks.
