Ham Radio Store Optical Fibre Communication: telecommunications Fibre optical communication enables telelcommunications networks to provide high bandwidth high speed data connections across countries adn the globe. It has also made its presence widely felt within the data networking community as well. Using fibre optic cable, optical communications have enabled telecommunications links to be made over much greater distances and with much lower levels of loss in the transmission medium and possibly most important of all, fiber optical communications has enabled much higher data rates to be accommodated. As a result of these advantages, fibre optic communications systems are widely employed for applications ranging from major telecommunications backbone infrastructure to Ethernet systems, broadband distribution, and general data networking. Development of fibre optics Since the earliest days of telecommunications there has been an ever increasing need to transmit more data even faster. Initially single line wires were used.

Author by : Raymond M. Fiber optic sensors embedded within materials and systems are able to measure a variety of parameters i. Examples include the following: monitoring structural fatigue in aging aircraft or loads in bridge structures. In more advanced applications, fiber optic sensors control actuators that allow materials to adapt to their environment. Structural Monitoring with Fiber Optic Technology is the firs single author book on the new field of fiber optic structural sensing.
As such it provides: coverage of the fundamentals of the technology, a coherent and systematic discussion on the most important aspects of the subject, a broad view of the subject, while retaining a degree of focus on those advances most significant in terms of their future potential, particularly in regard to broad implementation of the technology.
The book provides an introduction to the relevant value to structural monitoring. It also highlights the advantages of fiber optic based sensors over conventional electrical measurement technology.
The book richly illustrates the subject matter with figures and provides many examples of fiber optic structural sensing, including a detailed overview of a number of major field site applications. Most of these large scale applications are drawn from the civil engineering community as they have been the first to strongly embrace fiber optic structural monitoring. This is especially true for bridges, where innovative new designs and the use of fiber reinforced polymer composite materials to replace steel represents a major advance that is expected to revolutionize the construction industry.
Examples include new bridges, which are serving as testbeds for these new materials and are instrumented with arrays of fiber optic structural sensors.
In one case, this state-of-the-art monitoring system permits engineers at a distant site to track the response of the bridge to traffic loads and keep an eye on the long term performance of the new materials. Fiber optic structural sensing technology is equally applicable to other industrial sectors, such as the aerospace and marine industries.
Indeed, several examples of ships being instrumented with arrays of fiber optic sensors are also included.
