Paper Abstract

Recent advances in mid-IR (2-12 μm) optical fibers require that more serious consideration be given to the development of measurement techniques and the design of equipment to characterize these fibers and measure the propagation characterostics. In this paper, a review of the measurement techniques for characterizing mid-IR fibers is presented. The important properties of the sources and detectors suitable for these measurements are summarised. Currently used measuring systems and the typical measurement made on infrared fibers are reviewed.
