Paper Abstract

A system for measuring optical fiber bandwidth utilizing the Pulse Spectrum Analysis method (PSA) has been established. This paper will discuss problems inherent to that system such as signal-to-noise ratio and off-peak error. Included are the results of bandwidth measurements on multimode telecommunication grade fibers. Finally, the PSA method is compared to other bandwidth measurement methods: the frequency domain (FD) and the time domain (TD) methods.
