Abstract
A computer-based measurement system capable of measuring the attenuation, NA, dispersion, and OTDR in IR optical fibers is described. A review of measurement theory is presented. The hardware and software elements of the measurement system are discussed. The system operates from 2.8-14.0 μm using Pb-salt laser diodes. 500-MHz bandwidth HgCdTe detectors and a waveform digitizer are used in the dispersion and OTDR measurements. The optical layout and computer interface is described. Measurement technique and data from chalcogenide optical fibers is presented.
