Abstract
Recent experiments have demonstrated the feasibility of high-bit-rate transmission over single-mode fiber using LED light sources. Such a system is attractive for the local distribution network, because it combines the high performance of single-mode fiber with the low cost and reliability of LEDs. This paper provides an overview of recent developments in this technology. System design considerations, including speed and material dispersion limitations, temperature effects, and LED/fiber coupling are discussed.
