This project of investigation about fiber optics it’s a great opportunity to know more about the thousand of uses that the fiber optics has.
It can be used incommunications as transmission medium, as sensor, to illuminate any space, etc.
It´s interesting to know how something that just seems a large piece of plastic, could has a lot of uses in manyareas. Maybe it´s something you haven´t notice but it´s present in a lot o things that we use every day in our life.
An optical fiber is a flexible, transparent fibermade of very pure glass (silica) not much bigger than a human hair that acts as a waveguide, or "light pipe", to transmit light between the two ends of the fiber.
Optical fibers are usedin fiber optics communications, which permits transmission over longer distances, are used instead metal wires because its signal travels along them with less loss, so that’s why are soefficient.
We can say that the fiber optics is from the modern world but, in the old world the principle that makes the fiber optics possible, it’s just the refraction.
The fiberoptics as sensor:
This modality of fiber optics can be used to measure pressure, strain, temperature if you modify the fiber so that the property to measure modulates the intensity, phase,polarization, wavelength, or transit time of light in the fiber.
In medical uses the fiber optics acts as a light guide to shine directly to a target, But not necessarily in others caseit can be used only to shine with brightness to a target.
Well this project shows the fiber optics as a very important thing in a lot of areas.
We need it incommunications, it has its medical uses as a guide of light, as sensor and if you want it’s served only to illuminate.
This curious object is present in a lot of things that we hadn’t noticed.
