Abstract

A novel nondestructive propagation-loss measurement technique for single-mode waveguides is demonstrated. The method calculates the total propagation-loss coefficient from the measured ratio of the retroreflected and transmitted light from the waveguide and is independent of the coupling efficiency of the input light. A surface-wave transducer is utilized as an acousto-optic modulator in a lock-in scheme to enhance the measurement ease and precision.
