Abstract

The paper considers two questions. The first one is: Is it possible to transmit three-dimensional pictorial information through transparent glass (or other dielectric) fibers? We find that due to modal dispersion, pictorial information is invariably "smeared" in transmission. The second question is: Given nature's reluctance to transmit pictures through fibers, is there anything we can do about it? We suggest that the answer is yes and point to a class of solutions involving nonlinear optical mixing.
