Abstract Title: W54 - Glass Fibre Optics
Abstract: Within this hands on training the stripping and cutting of a telecom optical fiber will be learned. The light of a modulated diode laser is collimated and launched into the prepared fiber. The alignment process is monitored by a photodiode at the end of the 5000 m long fiber by means of an oscilloscope. Once the optimum alignment is achieved the time of flight inside the fiber is measured and the speed of light determined. Finally the angular distribution of the light at the end of the fiber is measured and the numerical aperture of the fiber determined.
