Paper Abstract

The calibration of chromatic dispersion measurement equipment is discussed. The need for absolute standards for both wavelength and dispersion coefficient scale factor is paramount. Wavelength calibration may be performed using several interference filters of certified wavelength. Known optical time delays of high absolute accuracy enable calibration of dispersion coefficient. The development and performance of instruments using absolute dispersion and wavelength techniques in order to offer transferable calibration standards is presented.
