Paper Abstract

Fiber optics devices have assumed many forms such as flexible bundles, fused plates and geometry converters. The materials used include glasses, plastics and, in nature, needle-like crystals of boron and other materials. In all cases, the basic fiber consists of a transparent core in contact with a material whose index of refraction is different, usually lower, than that of the core.
