Fibre Optic Cables
Transcript of Fibre Optic Cables
in the 1970s by Corning Glass Works, and since then they have been used in a wide range of applications. At first, they were extremely costly to be used in mass formations, but have now become cheaper. Optical fibre cables are also used in toys, and they can light up in many different colours. Optical fibres are a much better alternative to using standard copper wire, as it has many benefits over the other:
Less expensive than copper wire when dealing with long distances (saves you and your service providers money)
They have a much greater carrying capacity. Since optical fibres are thinner than copper wire, they can be bundled together much more easily.
Since they use light signals, they travel faster than those in copper, and don't interfere with other signals in the wire.
No electricity passes through optical fibres, so there is no hazard of a fire or other damage. So, what are they?
