Paper Abstract

Fiber optics measurements with a computer-controlled digitizing oscilloscope signal processing system. are described with emphasis on calculation, of fiber transmission characteristics. Automated measurements described include numerical aperture, attenuation, pulse spreading and the use of Fast Fourier Transform processing techniques to obtain the magnitude and phase of the frequency-response function as well as the impulse response function.
