A comparison was conducted of fiber optic links for use in electromagnetic environments. Determining which link is optimum for a particular application is dependent on the environment''s electromagnetic bandwidth and amplitude. the device under test the frequency range of interest the environmental conditions and the link''s characteristics. If electromagnetic parameters tested device and environment cannot be altered the link must be adaptable to the device in its environment and operate over the required frequency range. The comparison determined the bandwidth. magnitude linearity versus frequency and temperature risetime signal-to-harmonic ratio and relative merits of each link. The Nanofast 0P300-2A was judged to be the outstanding low radio frequency (RF) FOL. It had a consistant upper 3 dB point (BW ) of 250 MHz and minimum ripple with changing gain: a near linear temperature versus BWU with minimum ripple: a risetime between 1. 7 is and 2. 1 s and a SHR of 42 dB. For high RF use the EOD Sentinal 1000 was the FOL of choice because of its: consistant 1 GH: BWU and low magnitude ripple coefficient with changing gain and temperature a risetime of 0. 5 its and SHR 47 dB.
