All-fiber interferometer for chromatic dispersion measurements

An all-fiber interferometric method for chromatic dispersion measurements in meter-length single-mode fibers is presented. In a Michelson setup the physical length of a reference fiber was varied so as to obtain adjustable optical delay. Time resolution, ease of manipulation, and mechanical isolation are considerably improved with respect to conventional interferometers. Resolution of group delay measurement and chromatic dispersion over the full 1100-1700-nm spectral range are better than 5 fs and 0.1 ps/nm-km, respectively
