Paper Abstract

In this paper a method for determining the attenuation parameters of optical components is introduced. Measurements of insertion loss and return loss are performed by using an RF network analyzer with an appropriate optical test set. System performances and accuracy are evaluated in the time domain at ?= 1300 and 1550 nm wavelength. Measurements of various optical connectors are also provided.
