Paper Abstract

The paper reports initial experiments on two essentially complementary methods of coupling information, both into and from a continuous optical fibre highway, in each case in a non-invasive low-loss manner. Information is coupled onto the bus by means of a piezo-electric transducer which introduces differential phase modulation between the two modes of a polarisation-maintaining fibre. Coupling off is achieved by bending the fibre over a curved former and collecting the emerging radiation with a polymer fibre. The methods may be used in a complementary manner to produce a bi-directional local area network system.
