Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 3-7: Examinations and measurements - Wavelength dependence of attenuation and return loss of single mode components
a) measurement of attenuation only;
b) measurement of attenuation and return loss at the same time.
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2009. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) reduction of the number of alternative methods proposed to bring in-line with industry practice;
b) re-statement of the equations for insertion loss and return loss using logarithmic forms more common in the industry;
c) additional recommendations with respect to the creation of fibre terminations;
d) additional discussion on the characterization of the optical sources used in this document;
e) simplification of bi-directional testing;
f) removal of separate return loss only measurement procedures.
