Abstract
Within a very short time and an amazing period of research and development optical fibers changed the area of communications completely. While transmission of information through optical fibers has been considered first in 1966, 1970 Corning announced a breakthrough in fiber losses as low as 20 dB/km. Today's technology provides fibers commercially with losses of about 0.2 dB/km at 1.55 μm wavelength (i.e. transmitting over 15 km, 50 % of light power is still available).
