The manufacture of fiberoptics has undergone profound changes in the past few years, a phenomenon which has resulted in optical fibers possessing important new properties. This paper will describe several of the recent developments in fiberoptic manufacturing processes, the impact of these developments on fiber properties, the implications of improved fiber properties on potential uses, and a brief analysis of the kinds of improvements that might be expected in the near future.
