Paper Abstract

A wide band (> 1 GHz) fibre optic data link for measuring fast radiation signals has been developed. The system operates at the 1300 nm fibre optic transmission window and uses Cerenkov radiation as the radiation-to-light conversion process. At the recording end of the fibre p-i-n diode detectors and broad band amplifiers are used to give high sensitivity and bandwidth.
