Paper Abstract

We discuss the potential errors associated with the measurement of optical power in a field environment. The potential errors arise because field use is often inconsistent with the calibration method. Errors may be due to the use of connectors of different types and due to variation among vendors for a given connector type. We consider potential errors in power measurements due to the variation in a connector type among vendors.
