Abstract An analog fiber optic transmission link (FOTL) has been designed for relaying signals from equipment held at high voltage potentials to equipment at ground potential. The need for a fiber link arises from the requirements of low energy, light ion experiments conducted at the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory. In these experiments, ions are accelerated and transported to a high voltage scattering chamber and the FOTL is used to transmit signals from the scattering chamber to remote data acquisition systems. The performance of the link is mainly driven by the stringent requirements needed for successful transmission of analog pulses from radiation detectors located in the scattering chamber. The FOTL consists of a transmitter, receiver, and baseline restorer that are capable of transmitting radiation detector pulses without pulse height distortion, thus allowing high resolution energy measurements. The FOTL is also suitable for use with a wide variety of other analog signal types.
