Paper Abstract

Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) permits delivery of a variety of communications services over the same fiber without the need for costly MUX/DEMUX electronics. The versatility of miniature, monolithic imaging systems utilizing multilayer dielectric mirrors is demonstrated, both in single mode and multimode optical propagation environments, as in a three channel WDM for the transmission of bidirectional ISDN telephony signals and wideband television distribution signals on the same fiber without interference.
