The effective reflectance of multilayer high reflectance mirrors applied to fiber ends is determined by a shuttle pulse method. Light from a pulsed laser diode at 1.53-μm wavelength is injected into a fiber with mirrors at both ends, and the emergent pulse train amplitude decrement is used to obtain the reflectance.
