Improving the Accuracy and Consistency of Optical Transceiver Extinction Ratio Measurements
Extinction ratio, especially at high values, continues to be a challenging measurement to make. Measurement accuracy and measurement repeatability from system to system remain as industry concerns. By using the methods described in this paper to determine extinction ratio correction factors, the user can both decrease the uncertainty in the measurement and improve repeatability from system to system.
