" ... the Workshop was concerned with the knowledge that must be acquired to determine the structure and performance of near-optimum optical systems. The feasibility of implementing these systems with existing devices and the characteristics of necessary, but unavailable, devices were also considered. We hope that the Workshop, and this report of its deliberations, will contribute to the further development of optical communication systems."--Page iii.
