How to introduce fiber optics to beginners
Author(s): Bernt O. Sundstrom

Paper Abstract

Demonstrations of fiber optic transmission are described, using light emitting diodes, plastic fiber and a photodiode. Total reflection is visualized by a laser pointer and a Plexiglas bar. Rayleigh scattering can be seen from a plastic fiber. Bend loss and coupling loss can also be shown.
