Paper Abstract

The frequency response of data links transmitting analog signals over kilometer-length graded-index optical fibers is limited to 1 GHz by fiber bandwidth. System bandwidths can be substantially increased if single-mode fibers are used. In the developmental system presented here, a 1-km single-mode optical fiber is used to transmit an intensity-modulated 810-nm optical signal to a streak camera recorder. Useful system bandwidth could extend to 5 GHz.
