Paper Abstract

Due to the unusual experimental conditions experienced at the Nevada Test Site (NTS), unique requirements are imposed on calibration systems. This paper describes a fiber optic system which was used to calibrate a recent experiment. Eight photodiodes (PD's) were used as signal detectors. The experiment required that the relative timing between the signal channels be known to +50 ps. A multiple fiber system was used to provide sufficient signal amplitude to the detectors without stimulating Raman. By the use of this calibration tech-nique, relative timing to +35 ps was achieved.
