A novel type of optical fibers leaves behind its analogs

A team of scientists from Great Britain has presented several novel designs of hollow-core optical fibers that demonstrate losses comparable to or lower than those that solid glass fiber optic systems have. Additionally, these optical fibers allow scientists to decrease power losses, they can withstand high lasing intensities used for rick melting or drilling of...


Novel optical fibers made of methylcellulose

A team of scientists from Finland has presented a new type of optical fiber made of methylcellulose, a widely applied cellulose derivative. Such a fiber optic technology opens numerous applications of short-distance systems employing reliable and environmentally safe processing.  It should be noted that standard silica glass optical fibers deliver laser beam light signals over...
