Abstract

Polarisation extinction ratio (PER) is a power ratio measurement that is used to describe power exchange between polarisation states in optical fibres and components. It is particularly relevant to optical communication systems where increasing demand for higher data rates has focused attention on polarisation effects.
It has been shown there is an industrial need for traceability in such measurements and this report describes the development of a measurement service at NPL to verify the performance of commercially available PER meters. The work was carried out under contract to the NMS for milestone 2.2.3.2, “measurement system constructed and evaluated”.
