Recent transmission of 1.32-μm, 5-psec pulses through 1 km of optical fiber without significant dispersional distortion has clearly demonstrated the high-bandwidth capability of using short optical pulses and optical fibers. In addition, propagating optical signals are not easily influenced by external electromagnetic fields. Both facts point to optical communication as an attractive information-transmission medium for the future.
