Abstract : This report is the Final Report of a twelve-month program to develop an analog optical repeater for a 1 GHz-bandwidth recirculating delay line. The feasibility of using single mode fibers as the delay medium for a recirculating delay line of 1 GHz bandwidth and 1 ms delay time is investigated both theoretically and practically. Expected performances at both 1.3 micron and 1.5 micron wavelength with state-of-the-art optical components are indicated. Several key components that are essential for the delay line realization have been demonstrated. Optical receivers and transmitters with bandwidth exceeding 2 GHz have been achieved.
