1. A) One type of chemical impurity is Iron Oxide (FeO 2 ). This will cause absorption of energy that needs to be reflected in total internal reflection. It does this by causing the band gap to become more a spectrum, therein allowing electron excitement to higher energy levels by the light that needs to be transferred. Therefore, an impurity atom that would change the band gap would be hazardous to the transmission. Magnets will not be able to remove this because of the strong crystal lattice structure. Alternatively, distillation is able to separate silicon from impurities. Physically, bubbles in the glass and surface have to be eliminated to ensure that no light will be scattered that would change the angle of total internal reflection and cause light and energy to escape. One advantage of fiber optics is that the fibers can transmit light of many different energies.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
