End-face image analysis procedure for the calibration of optical fibre geometry test sets
|Publication Date:||1 July 2017|
|ICS Code (Fibre optic systems in general):||33.180.01|
This document describes the calibration of test sets that perform end-face image analysis, also known as "near-field" or "grey-scale" analysis. The principles, however, can be applied to test sets of a different type.
The procedures outlined are performed by calibration laboratories and by the manufacturers or users of geometry test sets, for the purpose of calibrating geometry test sets and for evaluating the uncertainties in measurements made on calibrated test sets. The calibration of fibre coating or cable measurement test sets is not covered by this document.
