Paper Abstract

A personal-computer based simulator has been developed to analyze different wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) configurations in optical fiber sensing and communication systems. Trade-offs are investigated in order to optimize system performance. Power budgets, channel widths and cross talk calculations are carried out for a system completely specified by the user. When exact loss variations with wavelength are not available, simplifying assumptions are incorporated in the model. The simulator uses a transfer function approach and is modular in nature.
