In the year 1966, Nobel Prize winner CK Kao concluded his study on “Dielectric-Fiber Surface Waveguides for optical frequencies”[1] envisaging that “a fiber of glassy material (…) represents a possible practical optical waveguide with important potential as a new form of communication medium”[1]. He was talking about the low losses optical fibers (or a “dielectric-fiber waveguide (…) with a circular cross-section”[1]) as presently used in optical fiber communication systems.Close this message to accept cookies and our Terms and Conditions.
