Abstract
Instrumentation and general methodology to conduct time domain dispersion measurements on polymer optical fiber are described. The equipment and analysis procedures for performing these measurements at 670 nm are presented together with experimental results on PMMA core fiber. Measured bandwidths are very dependent on launching conditions and may be substantially greater than those predicted for ideal step-index fibers. Effects such as mode dependent attenuation and mode coupling which
