Fiber Optic Demonstration System


The Fiber Optic Demonstration System is IFO's introductory fiber optic technology module. This tried and proven academic module comes complete and ready to use. All an instructor needs is a classroom and students. This curriculum recently has been revised and rewritten to include the very latest in the rapidly changing fiber technology field. Additions to the curriculum includes:

Fusion splicing techniques

Fiber connector technology

Optical power splitters

Wavelength division multiplexing

Fiber termination tools and procedures

Fiber optic testing and test equipment

The curriculum is a full-color manual precisly formatted into 10 independent activities in 144 pages with more than 60 real-world illustrations and industry photos. An extensive list of references and working glossary of fiber optic terms is included. Each activity includes:

Historical and technical reading assignments

Hands-on working experience and experiments with fiber optics and associated components

Problem solving and student worksheets

Team activities

Homework and invfestigative research

Web fiber optic tours and projects

Hands-on activities immerse students in the technological aspects of:

Voice tramission over fiber

Analog and digital data transmission

Morse Code over fiber optics

Optical fiber characterization

Fiber sensors and applications

Bending losses in optical fibers

Optical fiber termination and polishing

Attenuation in optical fiber
