Art Warner places a lightwave communications receiver into a laboratory rack

Bell Labs engineer Art Warner places a lightwave communications receiver module into a laboratory equipment rack.  Modules like this -- containing tiny photodetector devices -- will be used in the Chicago lightwave installation to convert light pulses to electrical signals compatible with those transmitted within the nationwide Bell System network.
