TELEPHONING BY LIGHT WAVES
One of the most wonderful of
modern inventions is that of an
apparatus which transmits tho
human voice on a ray of light. The
vibrations of the operator's voice
are ahrown upon a small concave
mirror, together with a beam of
banded light. The band of light
picks up oscillations as they fall
on the mirror, incorporates them
into its own swift vitality, and de
livers instaneously at the other
end, where they are translated
back into sound.
