Optical fibers: fabricating, using, having fun

Walter Margulis, Acreo Swedish ICT

Abstract: Optical fibers have many applications besides telecommunications. In this presentation, I will describe how fibers are manufactured and how they can be used in various applications. I will try to show that research in optical fibers has many interesting developments, and recent breakthroughs.

On a personal note, I will try to illustrate why the speaker – supposedly an expert on fibers – is puzzled with the result of the simplest of experiments with optical fibers. Perhaps you can explain what is going on.

The talk will also include some demonstrations.
