Fiber Optics - How Optical Fibers are Made
An optical fiber (or fibre) is a glass or plastic fiber that carries light
along its length. Fiber optics is the overlap of applied science and engineering
concerned with the design and application of optical fibers. Optical fibers
are widely used in fiber-optic communications, which permits transmission over
longer distances and at higher bandwidths (data rates) than other forms of communications.
