Introduction Fiber-optic lines are strands of optically pure glass about the diameter of a human hair that carry digital information over long distances.

Parts of fiber optic cable:

Parts of fiber optic cable Core - Thin glass center of the fiber where the light travels Cladding - Outer optical material surrounding the core that reflects the light back into the core Buffer coating - Plastic coating that protects the fiber from damage and moisture This works under the principle of total internal reflection

Fiber Optic Cables:

Fiber Optic Cables

How Does an Optical Fiber Transmit Light? :

How Does an Optical Fiber Transmit Light?

Advantages of Fiber Optics:

Advantages of Fiber Optics Less expensive . Thinner Higher carrying capacity Less signal degradation Non-flammable Lightweight

Testing the Optical Fiber:

Testing the Optical Fiber The finished optical fiber is tested for the following: Refractive index profile Fiber geometry Information carrying capacity (bandwidth) Operating temperature/humidity range Ability to conduct light underwater
