Abstract
Single mode guided light data transfer systems offer greatly expanded capabilities over multimode optical fiber systems. An overview of the status and capabilities of present single mode devices will be given with emphasis on sources, switches and couplers. Discussion will center on single mode coupling problems because low loss rugged couplers and splicers represent the most significant technological barrier to be overcome. A single mode fiber optic switching terminal presently under development at NRL will be described.
