Paper Abstract

Optical fiber communications have emerged as the leading edge technology of the present and the coming twenty first century. The deployment of optical fibers has seen nearly 20% compound annual growth since early 1980. This growth is accelerating, and the world wide production of optical fiber is expected to reach over 50 million km by the year 2000. Thus optical fibers have emerged as a high technology commodity. This paper will review two decades of advances in optical fiber process technology.
