Abstract
India has a population of more than 770 million mobile subscribers with number increasing at a swift rate. Most of the service providers have shifted to optical technologies based on fiber optics. Though, we have subscribers to various telecom services starting from the school level but they have little idea about the fiber optic technology used. The present development is an attempt to design a “Low cost optical fiber kit” which will explain the basics in a simpler and uncomplicated way. Some of the experiments which are planned to be developed and demonstrated include that on determination of numerical aperture, bending loss, fiber to fiber alignment losses, wavelength division multiplexing, process of optical communication etc. These kits have been developed under University of Delhi at ANDC SPIE student chapter’s optics outreach program. The kits will be demonstrated by the chapter student members at various schools in Delhi and distributed free.
