Abstract
An Optical Fiber Measurement System has been designed and developed to characterize the optical bandwidth of a concatenated fiber in a field environment. This system utilizes a modified EIA/NBS frequency domain fiber measurement technique normally used within laboratory environments. A brief discussion of the band-width measurement system and system components are described. Methodology described for the characterizations and calibration include modal output from the scrambler, source stability, absolute frequency detector line-arity, frequency response flatness, and spectral linewidth. Areas of problems and uncertainties leading to measurement error are adressed along with critical measurement issues.
