An echo-pulse technique for the location of fibre imperfections is described. The technique has been successfully applied to a plastics-coated Selfoc fibre and a plastics-coated silica-based fibre. Both showed a break. In the Selfoc fibre, an additional fibre defect was located. The same method may be used to measure rapidly the fibre length.
