Although the basic principles of fiber optics have been known for more than 160 years, the technology has really only come into its own in the past two decades. Today fiber optics has been shown to be vastly superior to copper wire at reliably transmitting large amounts of information over long distances. It is used extensively in telecommunications, networking and remote sensing applications, as well as in conductors for automobiles and spacecraft to dozens of life-saving uses in medicine. The Industrial Fiber Optics products below provide a first-hand, often hands-on look at various aspects of this vital technology.
