Abstract: The brief history of optically-powered electronic systems is reviewed. An optical FM data link is described whose remote electronics is optically powered. The frequency response and dynamic range of the system are examined.An application to the measurement of current in a high-voltage line by means o f a linear coupler is described. Experimental results are presented.
