This DVD is a primer for those involved with optical fibers and fiber optic technology. Learn about attenuation, dispersion, fiber types manufacturing, specialty fibers, applications and a historical overview.

Topics:

  • A brief look at the history and evolution of optical fibers.
  • The advantages of optical fibers.
  • Basic fiber optic theory such as wavelength, refraction, reflection, absorption, scattering and numerical aperture.
  • Single-mode and multimode optical fiber structures, including cores, claddings, and coatings.
  • Intrinsic and extrinsic optical attenuation.
  • Single-mode fiber types and the evolution of ITU-T G.652, dispersion shifted and NZDS G.655 types.
  • Types of optical dispersion including CD (material and waveguide), DMD (modal), and PMD.
  • Multimode fibers, modal dispersion and bandwidth measurements.
  • Application-specific optical fibers.
  • WDM, CWDM and DWDM fiber issues.
  • Optical windows and bands.
  • Plastic optical fibers and POF applications.
  • Applications including LANs, SANs, MANs, WANs, CATV/HFC, fiber to the home/passive optical networks, industrial controls, and security applications.
