Abstract
The state of the art in optical time domain reflectometry is described from the viewpoint of the instrument designer, with emphasis on single-mode technology. The fundamental OTDR range/resolution tradeoff is reviewed, along with its practical implications for measurement accuracy. Finally, prospects for future OTDR performance improvements are discussed.
