Abstract:

The goal of this effort was to develop and demonstrate a fiber optic analog recirculating delay line. The wavelength was 1.3 micrometers, and the bandwidth was 1GHz. Transmitters, receivers and the interface amplifiers for two recirculating delay lines were fabricated and tested. Open loop data showed amplitude ripple of less than or - 15dB. Problems with the diode lasers precluded fully meeting all of the performance goals for the hardware. Keywords Fiber optics Analog receiver Analog transmitter Fiber optic delay lines Repeator.
