    Lasers and Fiber Optics

    The use of lasers in fiber optics is an important milestone in the technical field. Because of their capability for higher modulation frequency, lasers were identified as an important means of carrying information. Laser diodes (LD) or light emitting diodes (LED) have the power to create tremendous amount of light that is very useful for fiber optics. In the earlier days there were only ruby lasers and helium-neon lasers. Then semiconductor lasers made their entry. Today fiber optics technology employs these semiconductor lasers. Lasers help fiber optic technology in data communications, sensing and other applications. fiber optic construction In fiber optic technology, transmitters comprise lasers and modulators. Lasers help to…
