Description: This readable account is likely to become the definitive history of fiber optics. Starting from early Victorian times, when fiber optics was viewed simply as a parlor trick, Jeff Hecht gives us the full story, including the characters, discoveries, and fortuitous accidents that made the technology possible. Fiber optics is now the backbone of a multi-billion dollar global communications network which includes the internet, telecommunications, and cable TV, plus laser, military, and medical uses, and this fascinating survey covers the full range of its applications. The book concludes with a realistic took into future possibilities.
