что делает OTDR?

OTDR (Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer, оптический рефлектометр временной области) сертифицирует характеристики заново установленных оптических линий связи и определяет проблемы в уже существующих. OTDR измеряет характеристики оптического волокна, выводит в графическом виде отраженный оптический сигнал по всей длине линии и предоставляет таблицу параметров всех оптических событий, обнаруженных в линии связи. Измерительный процесс включают в себя измерение общего […]

Introduction to BOTDR

B-OTDR Brillouin reflectometer BOTDR (Brillouin optical time domain reflectometer). Another kind of reflectometers is based on the Brillouin scattering. In the typical reflectometers the Rayleigh scattering is employed for analysis. The BOTDR reflectometer utilizes the phenomenon of the inelastic Brillouin scattering, related to generation of acoustic wave at frequency fB. The signal resulting from the […]
