Fiber Attenuation Attenuation is the amount of light lost between input and output. Attenuation limits the transmission distance for light retention. Total loss is the sum of loss due to: s Scattering LT/CTS-02B/1009 3 of 16 s Absorption s Light Coupling. Absorption and scattering are cumulative and increasing with fiber length. Practically the loss due to absorption and scattering together are called attenuation per unit length. Total loss is the determining factor for system performance.
