Paper Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to review our development of single mode fiber testing methods for use in the manufacturing environment. The rationale for selecting particular measurement techniques will be discussed in terms of precision, speed, the relevance of the parameter determined and the ability to integrate the test equipment into an efficient and cost effective measuring station. In addition, the suitability of current industrial measurements for qualifying newer fiber designs, such as dispersion shifted fiber will be addressed.
