Paper Abstract

Two-way communication through a single fiber with solid-state lasers as sources is described. This system was designed to use the same optical subsystem for transmitting as for receiving at each of the two stations. Operations were performed to polarize the laser beams orthogonally to each other from the two communicating stations. A multilayer, single-mode optical fiber capable of preserving the two orthogonally polarized modes of propagation was used as transmission medium. The multilayer configuration was constructed to confine most of the energy in the fiber core to minimize losses to absorption in the cladding. Separation of the beams was made by a duplexer capable of distinguishing the difference in polarity of the two beams.
