Abstract
Computer data links are evolving from copper cable systems to fiber optics simply because the optical fiber itself offers the advantages of higher data rates and longer distances. The Compact Disc (CD) laser is suitable as the light source because it satisfies the computer system requirements for low cost, high data rate, miniaturized package, and high reliability.
