Purpose and Objectives:

In the course, you will play the role of a telecommunication engineer to build a circuit that uses laser and fiber optic, which allow you to transfer voice and data telecommunications. After that solving the problem about transmission interruptions, calculate the error rate of data signal, power loss…

Particularly target: students from 12 – 18 years old

Knowledge:

  • Understand how fiber optics works
  • Understand the importance of using codes, such as Morse code, to convey information
  • Understand the nature of light
  • Determine the difference between reflection and refraction
  • Explore the characteristics of laser light
  • Gain an understanding of how light interacts with fiber optics and lasers
  • Explore the characteristics of laser light
  • Explore the impact of transmission interruptions on voice and data communications
  • Explore what a single optical fiber consists of and how this make-up lends itself to the communication process
  • Realize the importance of both attenuation and eliminating or minimizing the effects of bending losses in fiber optic links in order to provide reliable communications

Skill

  • Calculate the error rate for both methods
  • Apply the engineering design process
  • Evaluate and compare the reception accuracy by decoding audible and visual receptions
  • Experiment with fiber optics to see just how critical the junction of light is between the transmitter’s LED, the optical fiber, and the receiver’s detector
  • Practice preparing the end of a plastic optical fiber for proper operation
