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
Applications of a laser
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.
Applications of Fiber Optics
Telecommunications, secured and broad-band data
transmission, intelligent transportation systems, biomedical
industry, military, automotive, industrial sector, and many others.
