Fiber optics fiber optics and Snell's Law, Internal Reflection. Occurs when light is going from higher to lower index at large angles. Uses Snell's Law
Fish-eye view When light propagates from one medium into another, its speed changes, which causes the light to reflect and refract at the boundary
Grating reflectance The reflectance as a function of wavelength is computed for an index modulation Bragg grating
Graded Index Fiber The graded-index(GRIN)fiber has a core material whose reflective index varies with distance from the fiber axis, Graded Index Fiber

Interference between light waves Interference between light waves is the reason that thin films, such as soap bubbles, show colorful patterns. This is known as thin-film interference - interference between light waves reflecting off the top surface of a film with waves reflecting from the bottom surface
Internal reflection total Internal reflection
Laser cavity An optical cavity or optical resonator is an arrangement of mirrors that forms a standing wave cavity resonator for light waves. Optical cavities are a major component of lasers, surrounding the gain medium and providing feedback of the laser light, laser cavity animation

Lasers- the Best Light for Optical Fiber Communications Laser light is used for optical fiber communications for the simple reason that it is a single wavelength light source
Laser: Mechanism of a Free Electron Laser Free electron lasers make use of the phenomenon in which electrons traveling straight near the speed of light will release light if their course takes a sudden turn. If you place magnets with their north and south poles facing each other, and then fire in an electron at high speed

Sending Light by Optical Fiber Optical fibers have cores with diameters ranging from 10 to 50 microns. Optical signals are fed into the cores of these fibers using devices known as LD (laser diode) modules. Laser light generated by a high-output laser diode is passed through the lenses of the LD module to be fed into the fiber core
Single Mode and Multimode Optical fibers can be divided broadly into two types according to the way in which they transmit optical signals. One type, known as single-mode fiber, has a thin core with a diameter of about 10 microns, and allows light pulses to propagate in only one mode. The other type, multimode fiber, has a thick core of about 50 microns in diameter, and permits the propagation of multiple light pulses of differing angles of reflection

Trapping Light in a Core Optical fibers are composed of a central core, and a surrounding layer known as the cladding. The core is provided with a high refractive index, while a lower refractive index is used for the cladding. This difference in refractive indices is incorporated to ensure smooth travel of light along the core
