Abstract : A video bandwidth communications system utilizing optical fiber transmission was designed, constructed, and tested. An amplitude modulated gallium arsenide light emitting diode is driven by a transistor circuit. The output is detected by a wide bandwidth silicon detector-preamplifier hybrid circuit. Properties such as bandwidth and harmonic distortion were measured for the individual system elements and the overall system. A closed circuit television signal was sent through the system and a sharp clear picture was observed on the monitor. (Author)
