TEL-100007 Fiber Optics/Speed of Light Apparatus


This system enables the basic properties of optical fibres to be investigated and the ideas then extended to demonstration of some of the principal scientific and commercial uses. The low-cost plastic fibre may be cut to any desired length with a sharp knife and does not require any special terminating devices. It is also completely non hazardous. The system comprises a transmitter, a receiver (both built onto P.C. boards 120 x 150mm) and a 25m length of optical fibre. 20m of this is intended for speed of light determination and long distance communication demonstrations.

Connection of the fibre to the transmitter and receiver is achieved simply by pushing the cut ends into apertures in the LED and photodetector housings respectively.
