ECT 350 ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS FIBER-OPTICS IN TECHNOLOGY ANALYSIS PROJECT 5 1. What applications are fiber optics used for? It is used by telecommunications companies to transmit telephone signals, Internet communication, and cable television signals. Also has a arge advantages over existing copper wire in long-distance and high-demand applications. 2. Which material has an index of refraction of 1.46? Silica glass 3. Why is refraction the mode of fiber-optic transmission? It is one of the ways that a light wave can be made to alter its course? 4. Calculate the critical angle for the following core-cladding index combinations:
