Multi-wavelength transmission-reflection analysis for fiber monitoring
2014 (English)In: Optics Express, ISSN 1094-4087, Vol. 22, no 25, 31248-31262 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We propose and implement a novel approach based on multi-wavelength Transmission-Reflection Analysis (MW-TRA) technique for monitoring lossy events (e.g. disconnected connectors, fiber breaks and fiber bendings) along an optical fiber link. By launching un-modulated continuous-wave lights carried by different wavelengths into the fiber and measuring their transmitted and reflected/backscattered optical powers, our proposed MW-TRA scheme is able to localize any lossy event (including both reflective and non-reflective) and to quantify the corresponding insertion and return losses with high accuracy.
