Transmission Cross Sections of Optical-Fiber Feedthroughs for Suppression of Electromagnetic Interference

Published

Author(s)

Keith D. Masterson, David R. Novotny

Abstract

Various optical-fiber, bulkhead adapter feedthroughs were tested over a range from 1 GHz to 16 GHz to determine how much they degraded the shielding effectiveness of electronic enclosures. The shielding effectiveness varied widely, from a low of about 20 dB for polymer adapters to a high of nearly 90 dB for an all-metal FC connector system. The theory and test methodology are outlined.
