Electric Field Testing in Fiber Optics (Technical Whitepaper)

This set of tests was inspired by the desire to improve connector cleaning processes in a measurable way. The testing methodology was inspired by the 3M handheld electrostatic field meter, which was designed to measure the charge value (volts, V) of the electric field on a given object or workspace. The field meter measures a
