Link Model / K-factors / MPN

During a conversation with Rick Neumann yesterday regarding k-factors and
Mode-partition-noise (MPN), he drug out a paper of a method proposed in a
poster paper at OFC'88 that permits a MPN measurement using equipment
available to almost all optical transceiver companies, a spectrometer.

Rick mentioned that he has built a spreadsheet and did some experiments in a
previous life that validated the model to at least the first order.

We scanned this and then dumped it in a pdf file (not as good as the bitmap,
but 1/16 the size). While not crisp, I believe it is fairly readable. See

Would this technique be useful in an updated model?


p.s. Thanks David for putting this on the web site.  jt
