Optical time domain reflectrometry measurements in a 4km passively mode-locked fibre ring laser
V.J.Matsas, T.P.Newson and D.N.Payne
The first experimental Rayleigh backscatter measurements in a passively modelocked fibre ring laser are reported. The Rayleigh backscatter data were used to identify and estimate splice losses as well as the back reflection of the intracavity optical isolator.
