  • 3. Topic Optical Fiber Communication
  • 4. Introduction
    • Transmission Media
  • 5. Introduction
    • Communications systems that carry information through a guided fiber cable are called fiber optic systems .
    • Use of optical fibers to replace conventional transmission lines and microwave wave-guide in telecommunication systems.
    • Light is effectively the same as RF radiation but at a much higher frequency , theoretically the information-carrying capacity of a fiber is much greater than that of microwave radio systems.
  • 6.
    • As they are not electrically conductive , hence very suitable for use in areas where electrical isolation and interference are severe problems.
    • An attenuation of less than 2dB/Km .
  • 7. Advantages of Optical Communications 1) Extremely wide system bandwidth - up to 10 GHz is possible 2) Immunity to EMI - such as lightning, electric motors, fluorescent lights 3) Virtual elimination of cross-talk 4) Lower signal attenuation than other propagation systems
  • 8. Advantages of Optical Communications 5) Lighter weight and smaller size 6) Lower cost 7) Conversion of the earth’s resources - principal ingredient in glass is sand which is cheap and virtually unlimited supply 8) Safety - no hazard of short circuits nor spark will exist in optical fiber
  • 9. Fundamentals of Fiber Optic Systems
    • Optical fibers guide light waves within the fiber material because light rays bend or change direction when they pass from one medium to another . This phenomenon is called reflaction .
    • Optical fiber is a thin, transparent strand of material, usually glass or plastic or a combination of the two, that is used to carry light beams.
  • 10. Reflection in Optical Fiber
    • The light rays are reflected from the inner walls as they propagate lengthwise along the fiber.
    • A single light beam can be modulated simultaneously by hundreds, or even thousands, of independent signals.
  • 11. Refraction of Light
    • Light travels at approximately 3x10 8 m/s in free space and slower in a material denser than free space . This reduction in speed as it passes from free space into a denser material results in refraction of the light .
    • Sshows the light is bent at the interface. The degree to which the ray is bent depends on the index of refraction n of the denser material .
  • 12. Physics of Light
    • The normal is an imaginary line perpendicular to the interface of the 2 materials.
    • The angle of incidence is the angle of incident ray to the normal.
    • The angle of refraction is the angle of refracted ray to the normal.
    • The critical angle is the angle of incidence that will produce a 90 0 angle of refraction .
  • 13.
    • 3 specific conditions are shown in Fig. The angle of incidence, A 1 and the angle of refraction, A 2 .
    • Material 1 is more dense than material 2, so n 1 is greater than n 2 .
  • 14.
    • Fig. 3A shows how a light ray passing from material 1 to material 2 is refracted in material 2 when A 1 is less than the critical angle.
    • Fig. 3B shows the condition that exists when A 1 is at the critical angle and angle A 2 is at 90 0 . The light is directed along the boundary between the 2 materials.
    • Fig. 3C shows that any light ray incident at an angle greater than A 1 of Fig. 3B will be reflected back into material 1 with A 2 equal to A 1 .

      • Telephones
      • Internet
      • LANs - local area networks
      • CATV - for video, voice and Internet connections
      • Utilities - management of power grid
      • Security - closed-circuit TV and intrusion sensors
      • Military - everywhere!
    Fiber Optic Communications
  • 16. Why Use Fiber Optics?
    • Economics
    • Speed
    • Distance
    • Weight/size
    • Freedom from interference
    • Electrical isolation
    • Security
  • 17. Total Internal Reflection of Light
    • Total internal reflection in optical fibers
    • Total internal reflection forms the basis for light propagation in optical fibers.
  • 18. Fiber construction
  • 19. Fiber Optic Applications
    • Fiber is already used in:
      • > 90% of all long distance telephony
      • > 50% of all local telephony
      • Most CATV networks
      • Most LAN (computer network) backbones
      • Many video surveillance links
  • 20. Fiber Optic Applications
    • Fiber is the least expensive, most reliable method for high speed and/or long distance communications
    • While we already transmit signals at Gigabits per second speeds, we have only started to utilize the potential bandwidth of fiber
  • 21. Light Used In Fiber Optics
    • Fiber optic systems transmit using infrared light, invisible to the human eye, because it goes further in the optical fiber at those wavelengths.
  • 22. Propagation modes
  • 23. Mode of Propagation
    • Mode simply means path from which light is propagated.
    • If there is only one path for light to take down the cable, it is called single mode .
    • If there is more than one path , it is called multi-mode .
  • 24. Modes
  • 25. Fiber types
  • 26. LOSSES OF POWER 1.Power Loss By Scattering And Absorption. 2.Power Loss Due To The Dispertion Or Scattering
  • 27. Any Question ??????
