Applications of Lasers & Fiber Optics
Light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation is more
commonly known by it acronym, LASER. A laser is a source that
produces a single color highly directional light beam with high
Industrial materials processing, telecommunications, military,
public safety, and microelectronics to biomedicine,
pharmaceuticals, environmental sciences and many others.
An optical fiber is a transparent fiber made of glass or plastic,
slightly thicker than a human hair. It works as a waveguide, or
“light pipe” to transmit light along the length of the fiber. Fiber
optics is the field of applied science and engineering that designs
and applies optical fibers.
Fiber optics applications:
Telecommunications, secured and broad-band data
transmission, intelligent transportation systems, biomedical
industry, military, automotive, industrial sector, and many others.
