Paper Abstract

This paper proposes a simplified method for measuring the transmission and attenuation of optical fiber used for illumination. Use of an integrating sphere, in combination with the traditional fiber optic cut-back measurement approach, is described. Use of color filters to measure specific sets of wavelengths is also proposed. A `blue filter' method of measuring yellow color shift is described. Tests run using a lumen meter and a blue filter are summarized.
