Paper Abstract

A number of photodetector assemblies were constructed and evaluated for their suitability in an optical fiber attenuation measurement system operating in a production environment. The assembly exhibiting the best compromise among the critical performance parameters utilized a PIN photodiode with an achromatic lens assembly. This compromise required a trade off between measurement accuracy and the overall versatility of the photodetection system.
