Abstract

An automated apparatus is described for measuring mode-dependent scattering and total attenuation in graded-index waveguides. Measurements are reported for two low-loss waveguides and several high-loss waveguides. The results illustrate the ability of this technique to identify different types of loss mechanisms.
