Improvements in optical waveguide manufacturing processes have reduced the attenuation rate to approximately the material limit imposed by Rayleigh scattering. Today there is a need to develop measurement techniques or Procedures which can be used to predict the overall system insertion loss and bandwidth. Multimode propagation in graded waveguides makes it difficult to define the attenuation rate and bandwidth without referencing the particular source Power distribution used in making the measurement. This paper will discuss the problems in making these measurements and will present a recent model and results which can be used to predict system performance.
