Paper Abstract

A wavelength tunable polarization OTDR utilizing a semiconductor optical amplifier for the received signal amplification is proposed in order to realize stable operation. Measurement experiments are carried out for a fiber link with a length of 5.7km and the state of polarization change along the fiber link is successfully estimated.
