Abstract
The feasibility of a power by light headset for use in aircraft communication has been explored. The research has focused on defining a system concept which optimizes the optical efficiency of the uplink and the headset "power-by-light" elements and minimizes the electrical power consumption of the microphone downlink. Breadboards and tests of the critical power-by-light power supply, earphone driver, and downlink elements have been performed. The data from the experiments are presented and analyzed in order to develop design rules and component requirements for the fiber optic, power by light headset design.
