A thin flexible fiber with a glass core through which light signals can be sent with very little loss of strength.
- Such fibres might outperform normal optical fibres because light trapped in their hollow core travels through a tenuous gas, rather than a solid glass.
- In that technique, an optical fiber is used to transmit light from a specially coated lens.
- The light detected by the receiver is transmitted through an optical fibre to a computerised spectrum analyser.
