Determination of structural parameter variations in single-mode optical fibres by time-domain reflectometry

M.P.Gold, A.H.Hartog

Abstract

Backscatter measurements on single-mode fibres reveal apparent changes in local attenuation resulting from backscatter factor variations. The detailed shape of the backscatter waveforms is compared to known variations of fibre parameters.
