Abstract

Utilizing the fundamentals of chirped laser dispersion spectroscopy, an alternative method of fiber dispersion measurement is presented. The dispersion of the device under test is probed through the interaction of copropagating electromagnetic waves and subsequent heterodyne detection and frequency demodulation. Measurement of the dispersion parameter, D, is possible with this direct measurement scheme.
