Abstract : An image is relayed in parallel over single mode optical fiber using the principles of physical optics (Holography). This is in contrast to all conventional fiber optic signal processing, which first converts all information into a sequential stream of bits or analog data. At this stage, a bundle is used only for intensification, and the required reference signal is sent separately in free space. Future work will incorporate even these last two system components into one single mode fiber. This is the first time this has been accomplished.
