Abstract
We present a modification of the interferometric method for the measurement of optical fiber chromatic dispersion using an easily aligned, almost all-fiber Michelson interferometer. Particular issues of the microstructure fiber characterization are discussed. Accuracy of the method is validated by comparing the chromatic dispersion measurement of the standard single-mode fiber with results obtained using the phase-shift method.
