Paper Abstract

A very broad spectrum of technical literature has reported the activities and achievements in the field of fibre optics over the past ten years. The output in the past two years has been immense. Most of the reporting has been related to the world-wide achievements in optical transmission of data in public telephone networks. However, the less spectacular progress in commerce/industry has received significant exposure in the same period. The classical properties of optical fibres are being married to electronic circuitry to provide precision mark sensing in high speed processing equipment.
