Single-mode fiber geometry and chromatic dispersion: results of interlaboratory comparisons
Timothy J. Drapela, Douglas L. Franzen, M. Young
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (Nisn recently completed two interlaboratory comparisons with members of the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). Participants included most major fiber and cable manufacturers in North America. We evaluated test procedures for geometry and chromatic dispersion. In both cases, the measurement spread in the industry was due mostly to systematic differences among laboratories. Measurement agreement would be significantly improved through the use of reference fibers.
