Paper Abstract

This paper describes the development of the Multiwavelength Monolithic Integrated Fiber Optic Terminal (MMIFOT) by MDAC-St. Louis for the NASA Johnson Space Center. The program objective is to utilize guided wave optical technology to develop wave-length multiplexing and demultiplexing units using a single mode optical fiber for transmission between terminals. Intensity modulated injection laser diodes, chirped diffraction gratings and thin film lenses are used to achieve the wavelength multiplexing and demultiplexing. The video and audio data transmission test of an integrated optical unit with a Luneburg collimation lens, waveguide diffraction grating and step index condensing lens is described.
