A new technique for measuring the temporal transfer function of optical fibers is described. The method consists of placing the fiber under test in one arm of a Mach-Zehnder interferometer excited by a broadband source. The temporal impulse response is obtained from a holographic reconstruction. The method requires only short lengths of single-mode or multimode fibers (less than 1 m). We have measured a dispersion of 0.3 nsec/km.nm at 0.59 μm with a single-mode fiber, in good agreement with theory. The arrival times of the various modes of multimode fibers are resolved.
