Abstract : The major achievements of the period covered by this report were: (1) Reduction by several orders of magnitude of the defects occurring at the core-coating interface of fibers. (2) Production of a photographic record essentially free of photometric imperfections by means of a 2.5 inch fiber optics facsimile scanner. (3) Identification of grinding and polishing as a phase which requires further detailed study. (4) Accumulation and cataloging of characteristic photodetector data. (Author)
