|Title:||Tricks of the Trade: Choice of connectors makes a difference in optical fiber power measurements|
|Published:||April 01, 2008|
|Abstract:||The only way to ensure accurate measurements of optical fiber power is to have your OFPM calibrated in the configuration that you intend to use it. Users must consider the fiber connectors and adapters that they will use as well as the optical wavelength and power. There is no consistent methodology for predicting the magnitude of the offsets that occur when different connectors and/or adapters are used with a calibrated OFPM.|
