Optical Fiber Tool Design

Print

Multimedia is an indispensable part of modern life. To cope with the huge amounts of data this involves, data transmission systems use polymer or glass fiber optic cables to transmit digital signals in the form of light. These offer high transmission rates, low damping, high electromagnetic compatibility, small dimensions and light weight.
