A reliable test procedure for an optical communication transmission system has been developed and demonstrated over 6GHz range. The frequency response of an optical test system is measured for a short fiber (∼5 meters) with a periodically deformed axis, inducing selective spectral loss on the propagating fundamental mode. The results of this measurements are compared with 10km transmission system and found in agreement with the test measurements.
