  1. 1. Brief flow of presentation 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Introduction What are Optical Fibers? Evolution of optical fiber Structure of optical fiber Workings principle of optical fiber Classification of optical fiber Optical fiber communication system Advantages / Disadvantages of Optical fiber Applications of Optical fiber Conclusion
  2. 2. Evolution of optical fiber • • • • • • • 1880 – Alexander Graham Bell 1930 – Patents on tubing 1950 – Patent for two-layer glass wave-guide 1960 – Laser first used as light source 1965 – High loss of light discovered 1970s – Refining of manufacturing process 1980s – OF technology becomes backbone of long distance telephone networks in NA.
  3. 3. What is optical Fiber? • An optical fiber is a hair thin cylindrical fiber of glass or any transparent dielectric medium. • The fiber which are used for optical communication are wave guides made of transparent dielectrics. • Its function is to guide visible and infrared light over long distances.
  4. 4. Structure of optical fiber
  5. 5. • Core – central tube of very thin size made up of optically transparent dielectric medium and carries the light form transmitter to receiver. The core diameter can vary from about 5um to 100 um. • Cladding – outer optical material surrounding the core having reflecting index lower than core. It helps to keep the light within the core throughout the phenomena of total internal reflection. • Buffer Coating – plastic coating that protects the fiber made of silicon rubber. The typical diameter of fiber after coating is 250-300 um.
  6. 6. Working principle Total Internal Reflection • When a ray of light travels from a denser to a rarer medium such that the angle of incidence is greater than the critical angle, the ray reflects back into the same medium this phenomena is called total internal reflection. • In the optical fiber the rays undergo repeated total number of reflections until it emerges out of the other end of the fiber, even if the fiber is bent.

  8. 8. Total internal reflection in optical fiber
  9. 9. Classification of optical fiber • Optical fiber is classified into two categories based on :1) The number of modes, and 2) The refractive index
  10. 10. On the basis of number of modes:on the basis of number of modes of propagation the optical fiber are classified into two types: (i) Single mode fiber (SMF) and (ii) Multi-mode fiber (MMF) • Single-mode fibers – in single mode fiber only one mode can propagate through the fiber. This type of fiber has small core diameter(5um) and high cladding diameter(70um) and the difference between the refractive index of core and cladding is very small. There is no dispersion i.e. no degradation of signal during travelling through the fiber. • The light is passed through the single mode fiber through laser diode.
  11. 11. • Multi-mode fiber :• Multi mode fiber allows a large number of modes for the light ray travelling through it. • The core diameter is (40um) and that of cladding is(70um) • The relative refractive index difference is also larger than single mode fiber. • There is signal degradation due to multimode dispersion. • They are not suitable for long distance communication due to large dispersion and attenuation of the signal.
  12. 12. Refraction at a plane surface
  13. 13. Refraction Refraction is the changing direction of light when it goes into a material of different density
  14. 14. On the basis of Refractive index • There are two types of optical fiber:• (i) Step-index optical fiber • (ii) Graded-index optical fiber • Step
  15. 15. Step index fiber • The refractive index of core is constant • The refractive index of cladding is also constant • The light rays propagate through it in the form of meridiognal rays which cross the fiber axis during every reflection at the core cladding boundary.
  16. 16. Graded Index fiber • In this type of fiber core has a non uniform refractive index that gradually decrease from the centre towards the core cladding interface. • The cladding has a uniform refractive index. • The light rays propagate through it in the form of skew rays or helical rays. They do not cross the fiber axis at any time.
  17. 17. How Optical Fiber’s are made?? • Three Steps are Involved in the manufacturing of the optical fiber which are given below:-Making a Preform Glass Cylinder -Drawing the Fiber’s from the preform -Testing the Fibre
  18. 18. Optical Fiber Communication System Information source Electrical source Optical source Optical fiber cable Optical detector Electrical receive Destination
  19. 19. • Information source- it provides an electrical signal to a transmitter comprising an electrical stage. • Electrical transmitter- It drives an optical source to give an modulation of the light wave carrier. • Optical source- It provides the electrical-optical conversion .It may be a semiconductor laser or an LED.
  20. 20. • Optical cable: It serves as transmission medium. • Optical detector: It is responsible for optical to electrical conversion of data and hence responsible for demodulation of the optical carrier. It may be a photodiodes, phototransistor, and photoconductors. • Electrical receiver: It is used for electrical interfacing at the receiver end of the optical link and to perform the signal processing electrically. • Destination: It is the final point at which we receive the information in the form of electrical signal.
  21. 21. Attenuation • Attenuation is the loss of the optical power. • Attenuation in optical fiber take place due to elements like coupler, splices, connector and fiber itself. • A fiber lower attenuation will allow more power to reach a receiver than with a higher attenuation. • Attenuation may be categorised as – (i) Intrinsic (ii) Extrinsic
  22. 22. Factor causing attenuation in Fiber • Fig. shows the factor affecting the attenuation in fiberAttenuation Extrinsic Intrinsic Absorption Scattering Macrobending Microbending
  23. 23. Variation of specific attenuation with wavelength
  24. 24. Attenuation & Wavelength • The specific attenuation ( power loss in dB per unit length ) actually depends on the wavelength of the radiation travelling along the optic fibre • The graph shows minima at 1310nm and 1550nm, which implies that these are desirable wavelengths for optimal transmission • These are infra red wavelengths
  25. 25. Advantage of optical fiber communication 1) The life of fiber is longer than copper wire 2) Handling and installation costs of optical fiber is very nominal 3) It is unaffected with electromagnetic interference 4) Attenuation in optical fiber is lower than coaxial cable or twisted pair. 5) There is no necessity of additional equipment for protecting against grounding and voltage problems. 6) As it does not radiates energy any antenna or detector cannot detects it hence provides signal security
  26. 26. Disadvantage 1) Highly skilled staff would be required for maintenance 2) Only point to point working is possible on optical fiber 3) Precise and costly instruments would be required 4) Costly if under utilized. 5) Accept unipolar codes only. 6) Jointing of fiber and splicing is also time consuming.
  27. 27. Applications • Optical fiber have wider range of application in almost all field, some are been specified below • • • • • • • In telecommunication field In space applications Broadband applications Computer applications industrial applications Mining applications In medical applications In military applications etc.
  28. 28. • Optical fiber have wider range of application in almost all field, i.e. in medical, electronics, military etc .some are been specified below • Medical • Military • Electronics IBM microprocessors
  29. 29. The Endoscope There are two optical fibres One for light, to illuminate the inside of the patient One for a camera to send the images back to the doctor. Key hole surgery
  30. 30. Conclusion This concludes our study of optical fiber communications have looked at how they work and how they are made. We have examined the properties of fibers, and how fibers are joined together. Although this presentation does not cover all the aspects of optical fiber work it will have equipped you knowledge and skills essential to the fiber optic industry.
