Title: Transfer function analysis of measured transfer matrices
Published: August 01, 1989
Abstract: Measurements of mode transfer matrices of various multimode fiber optic connectors are presented. To analyze the accuracy and repeatability of such measurements, a theoretical framework which employs mode transmission functions is derived. It is shown that the transfer function can be used to find transfer matrices for any set of launches. A procedure for determination of the mode transfer function is given.
