Paper Abstract

The theory of MTF measurements on fiber optics is analyzed and demon strated in a practical application. A production unit of a new MTF meter, made for measurements of fiber optics only, is exhibited for the first time, showing how an unskilled operator can make reliable and repeatable MTF graphs of fiber optics on a production scale. This is done by scanning the entire surface of a flexible bundle, and by measuring small surface elements in various directions, thus obtaining information as to the transmission efficiency of the entire bundle under test.
