Optical communication system


Posted on Feb 27, 2013

The circuit will modulate the light from the LED using a crystal microphone or a loudspeaker output. To obtain the maximum range, the optical system must be efficient (see example). Either a convex lens or a concave mirror can be used to convert the LED output into a parallel beam. The received light is concentrated onto a sensitive photodarlington transistor.

At short range the signal across the load resistor is adequate to drive a crystal earpiece, for longer range an amplifier and a loudspeaker are needed.
