A Research On Fibre Optic Data Transmission

[Full Text]



Şeyhmus Yılmaz, Sultan Zavrak, Huseyin Bodur



Fiber optic, data transmission, types of fiber optic cables, advantages and disadvantages of fiber optic.



Fiber optic technology is a technique of sending data from one place to another by transmitting pulses of light via an optic fiber. This paper is written to provide an introductory look at optic fibre data transmission, the structure of an optic fibre and the mechanism used to carry the optical signal within the fibre, using mono-mode and multi-mode transmission methods and wavelength division multiplexing. In this paper, the advantages and disadvantages of fibre optic cables are also discussed.
