  • Optical Fibres The Speed Of The Light
    1,172 words
    The Properties of Light Applied to Fibre Optics One of the basic properties of light is that it travels in straight lines and can have it's direction changed. This is the property which is applied to achieve the purpose of Fibre Optics which is to carry light from one place to another. The way this is done can be explained by the principle of refraction. This is the principle which governs the behaviour of light as it passes from one transparent substance to another. It states; if a ray of light...
  • Result In Signal Loss And Optical Fibres
    1,297 words
    Page 1/Preface Fibre optics is an emerging form of technology that uses minute fibres of glass or plastic to transmit light. The light source and method of delivery can be modified to transmit computer data, such as images and sound, or simply luminescent light. In recent years, the advancement of fibre optic technology has increased greatly. Many of these advancements, along with an explanation of the technology and societal implications will be discussed within this essay. Introduction Figure ...
  • Fibre Optic Bundles If Light
    2,326 words
    Fiber OpticsAssignmentMany modern medical materials and equipment work on a principle which is beyond the capacity of human transducers. Comment and discuss the working principles of an endoscope, a recto scope showing the illuminating path, the image path, transmission path and the liquid transfer or operating instrument ducts, showing the position of suitable valves. This will therefore explain how light travels through an optical fibre and show how such fibres are used in medicinal equipment ...
  • Simplest Use Of Optical Fibres
    2,871 words
    History of Fibre Optics When Alexander Graham Bell spoke over a beam of light in the 1880's, he never dreamed ofthe possibilities that modern scientists are dreaming up for light. He used sunlight which was focused by means of a reflector and a lens to a device which could be made to vibrate in harmony with speech from a human voice. The light beam was made to vary the focus in and out so that the strength on a selenium detector could be made to activate a telephone receiver and recreate the ori...
