Comparing Optical Return Loss (ORL) Measurement Methods

Inside this application note the reader can learn explanation about application note, scattering, test, light, device, finite resolution, optical fiber, integral mode, optical connector, connector, domain, and equivalent measurements. There are many explanation around region, rayleigh, measurement, discrete mode, methods, time domain measurements, dynamic range, time domain method, fiber, measurement methods, and time domain are described inside the application note.

The application note tells the reader discussion like rayleigh backscatter, method, domain measurements, contributions, software, measurement techniques, application, window, backscatter, reflections, and setup. These are taken from this application note:

This paper reviews two techniques for measuring ORL: time-domain measurements and opticalcontinuous-wave reflectometry (OCWR). Both techniques are described in IEC IEC 61300-3-6. This paper will describe the differences in sensitivity between the two methods and how to generate equivalent measurements. While the OCWR method is more traditional, the newer time-domain method has become by far the most popular due primarily to its ease-of-use, increased dynamic range, and speed. As with any discussion on ORL, proper cleaning and inspection is critical and it must be stressed that the repeatability of a connection under test is a major contribution to the changes often observed.

Also, the application note presents more regarding basic measurement, power, fresnel reflections, time, techniques, fresnel reflection, mode, manual, rayleigh scattering, terminations, and width.
