Begins New Lecture Series on
The FOA is dedicated to make technical material readily available to
all those interested in fiber optics. For all 15 years of our
existence, we've created reference materials in the form of printed
textbooks and web pages. Now our Online Reference Guide has grown
so large it needs it's own Google Search and we offer all three of our
new books on the Amazon Kindle or Apple iPad/iPhone/iPod. Recently we
started our own channel on YouTube and
the response has been enthusiastic.
So we've been adding more videos to YouTube, including a demonstration
of how to use your cell phone camera to detect IR light in fiber
systems and have started a lecture series on fiber optics.
The first lecture is called "Fiber Optics and Communications" and FOA
President Jim Hayes describes the many different uses of fiber in
telecommunications, CATV, security, utility and many other networks.
Future lectures will cover the basics of fiber and cable, termination
and splicing, installation and testing.
