Pulse propagation along optical fibres

Gambling, W.A., Laybourn, P.J.R. and Lee, M.D. (1970) Pulse propagation along optical fibres Electronics Letters, 6, (12), pp. 364-365. (doi:10.1049/el:19700255).

Record type: Article


Mode-locked helium-neon lasers have been used to propagate pulses of ~1 ns duration along multimode cladded glass fibres. Any pulse spreading due to dispersion in a 33 m length of fibre is less than 0.5 ns which is the limit of resolution of the measuring equipment. This result indicates that a pulse transmission rate of at least 33 MHz may be possible over a distance of 1 km.
