Abstract:

Recent progress in optoelectronic technology makes practical point-to-point optical data transmission systems consistent with military requirements and potentially far superior to wire techniques. This project provides survey of the current state-of-the-art technology and investigates the feasibility of a fiber optic interface between a receiving antenna and radio receiver in the high frequency spectrum. An optoelectronic interface based on the use of conventional multimode fiber optics with a light emitting diode optical source and a hybrid silicon photodiode-preamplifier photodetector was designed, constructed, and tested. Signal reception for the interfaced system was observed throughout the receiver spectrum. Author
