Paper Abstract

The realization of high speed, wide dynamic range, high, stability analog fiber link for underground nuclear testing requires physical contact connectors. At first the kinds of links and performances needs are given, then we discuss the influence of contact or non contact connectors on the stability and the noise for coherent or non coherent links. The analog fiber optic link with physical contact connectors presents a 4%pp level stability and a dynamic range of 4000/1 or 2500/1 respectively for non coherent links or coherent links. This has been verified as well at laboratory as on a gamma ray pulser with.field equipment.
