Paper Abstract

The Atlanta Single-Mode Experiment successfully demonstrated the viability and economic attractiveness of single-mode fibers as waveguides in future telecommunication systems. This paper describes the main optical components used in this experiment, such as the depressed-refractive-index cladding single-mode fiber, the stranded cable design, a novel bonded-splice technique, and precision directly-molded and field-assembly-type biconic connectors. A two-channel WDM experiment was performed in the 1.3 micron wavelength region using interference-filter multiplexers, grating demultiplexers, and InGaAsP/InP buried-heterostructure lasers centered around 1.275 and 1.335 micron wavelengths. In addition, a bi-directional transmission experiment was performed in the 1.3/1.5 micron wavelength regions.
