Abstract : The design of a system for point-to-point voice communications using a frequency modulated diode laser as the transmitter is presented. Theories are discussed for the Ga-As semiconductor laser, the laser pulse circuits, the p-i-n silicon photodiode detector, and the frequency demodulator. Designs of the elements of the system and some experimental results are presented. Operation of a complete system is discussed. (Author)
