Abstract
For the multiple-source phase shift method of measuring chromatic dispersion in single mode optical fibers, the magnitude and origins of measurement errors are examined. Calculations show that worst-case errors can be caused primarily by source wavelength uncertainty for measurement of long fiber lengths with high modulation frequencies. For shorter (factory length) fibers and lower modulation frequencies both phase and wavelength uncertainty can be important error sources.
