Paper Abstract

Results of reflectometric measurements of the lengths of sectors of single mode telecommunication fibers. Significant extension even by a few meters, of the measured sections, as compared with their real lengths, have been discovered assuming that the measurement was made from the reflectometer towards the splice, and it was found out that the length was shortened if the measurement was made from the splice towards the event of the reflection type (the end of the route). Measurement were made on the band 1310 nm and 1550 nm with the use of a few reflectometers of different types. Analysis and possible reasons of measurement errors have been presented as well as a proposition how to correct them.
