Abstract

We propose a mode-dependent transmission-loss measurement technique for a two-mode fiber (TMF) using nonlinear least-squares regression of the data obtained by a conventional optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR). The transmission loss of a 15-km-long TMF is successfully estimated by neglecting mode-coupling during propagation.
