Abstract

A single optical fibre may be used to simultaneously transmit a byte of data. The bits of the data byte are coded into separate colors and the separated color coded bits are transmitted through a composing prism to the optical fibre. The composite light signal is transmitted by the optical fibre to a decomposing prism where the composite signal is decomposed into its separate color coded bits. The received color coded bits are detected by detectors which provide an output in the original byte data form.
