Introduction to Fibre Optics
Optical fibres are tubes made out of glass orplastic, that can carry information such as imagesalong their length. They are much more useful than traditional metalwires for carrying information, as it can betransported much quicker (up 111 gigabits/s) andwill not be affected by kinks in the wire. It can alsobe cheaper to produce and install. They carry information using Total InternalReflection, which is explained on the next slide.
 
 
 Total Internal Reflection
 The larger the angle to the normal (90
°
fromsurface), the less light escapes through thesurface. Eventually, no light will escape, which iscalled Total Internal Reflection. The red line showslight escapingbecause of the smallangle to the normal.In this diagram, theblue line shows totalinternal reflection off the horizontalsurface.
