Paper Abstract

A system has been developed to transmit analog signals through 1-km-long fiber-optic cables having bandwidths up to 1.5 GHz. Semiconductor injection laser-diode transmitters operating at a wavelength of about 815 nm are directly modulated by electrical signals from radiation detectors. Graded-index optical fibers transmit the optical signals to a remote facility, where they are recorded on a single streak camera.
