Abstract:

This paper describes an active characterization technique that generates backscatter signatures to measure the performance of optical time- domain reflectometers OTDRs. These signatures can be used to test an OTDRs loss accuracy dynamic range, spatial resolution, loss resolution, and receiver recovery time.
