Paper Abstract

This paper describes an active characterization technique that generates backscatter signatures to measure the performance of optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDRs). These signatures can be used to test an OTDR's loss accuracy, dynamic range, spatial resolution, loss resolution, and receiver recovery time.
