Paper Abstract

The paper reports progress in three areas essential to avionics composite-embedded data links: evanescent coupling and signal distribution, embedded connectors, and embedment of high temperature optical fibers in metal matrix composites. The objective of this research is improving signal transmission capabilities and reducing weight through the use of composite-embedded optical fibers in airborne electronic packaging. Guidelines for future work in these areas are presented.
