You’ve been waiting for it all week and it’s finally here, happy fiber optic Friday everyone! Here’s some things you probably didn’t know about fiber optics to kick off your weekend!
1. Fiber optics aren’t influenced by weather, wow! Since they carry light instead of electricity they are not affected by changes in temperature and weather patterns.
2. Having fiber optic services adds roughly $5,000 to the estimated price of a house. Since fiber optics aren’t readily available all over the country, they could help you gain some extra cash when you sell your house!
3. China requires all new housing developments to have fiber optic connections!
4. The military uses fiber optics in their harshest areas so that they get the most reliable communication
The head of robotic surgery at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Dr. David Samadi, is using fiber optics to save lives!! He uses the technology to get better accuracy when removing cancerous cells. According to Dr. Samadi nothing is quite as accurate as fiber optics. Fiber optics is saving the day once again! Watch the video below for more details about the incredible work being done in New York by Dr. Samadi!
Ever wondered how light travels through fiber optics?! When light enters the core it continues to reflect off the mirror-like walls to create the wavelengths like the ones shown above. Depending on the angle the light is pointed, it will create thicker or thinner waves. Check out the incredible demonstration above!
It is that time of year again! Fast Trak had its quarterly trip to Dallas.
