Paper Abstract

Repeatable measurements of the bandwidth of multimode fibres, with a good understanding of the systematic errors involved are required for the design and maintenance of communication systems. A measurement system is described which facilitates a close comparison between results obtained using time and frequency domain techniques. The optical layout provides an alternative to the "cut-back" method for system response measurements. Systematic errors associated with each technique are illustrated and methods to overcome them are presented.
