Fibre Optics are transparent, flexible strands of fibre made from quality glass like silica or plastic mainly to transmit light from one end of its fibre to another. The structure of the fibre optic consists of three main parts: • The core : The centre glass of the fibre from where the light would travel • The Cladding: The material around the core (centre glass) which reflects all the light back into the core • Buffer Coating: A layer of coating which prevents any damage occurring to the glass This light transmitting function of the fibre optic is used in Fibre
