Abstract : State of the art advances in fiber optics have reached the point at which modulated light signals can be transmitted by means of a fiber optic bundle and subsequently detected. A system capable of modulating a light emitting diode with wide band analog signals, transmission through a fiber optic bundle, and subsequent detection is investigated. Tests are conducted to determine frequency response, linear dynamic range, saturation levels, minimum discernible signal, noise figure, and spectrum characteristics of the system. As a result of the investigation, it is determined that the system is suitable for transmission of information to tape recorders from receiver systems and is capable of other analog information applications where signal frequencies do not exceed seven megahertz.
