Simultaneous position-resolved mapping of chromatic dispersion and Brillouin shift along single-mode optical fibers
We describe a new method for performing simultaneous position-resolved measurements of chromatic dispersion and Brillouin shift along single-mode optical fibers. The technique provides consistent high-resolution and low-noise results for both quantities. Our measurements indicate a certain correlation between both magnitudes, although the degree of correlation varies for the different manufacturers tested.
