Abstract : Extension of a previously demonstrated fiber optic data transmission system to eight terminals and bidirectional operation is demonstrated to be within the state of the art. At a 5MB/s data rate a worst-case SNR of 5 dB was demonstrated. Improved optical couplers comprising a dual internal mirror mixing block mounted in a low-loss, all-metal holder and integral electronics are described.
