Paper Abstract

An OTDR system has been developed with dead zone and distance resolution in the millimeter range. This system combines streak camera technology in a sampling streak tube with a fast pulsed laser diode system. The OTDR configuration combines these two instruments into a Fresnel reflection system which precisely locates the back reflection from fiber discontinuities and interconnections.
