    If I modulated a laser frequency with voice, would a photo cell be capable of receiving that information?

    A very good website with a lot of fun activiites: http://scitoys.com/ [Broken] has an example project along these lines (amplitude modulation though, not frequency modulation).

    I have done it with PWM. Low pass filter the signal at the detector and you have your audio.
