Optical fibers are made of glass or plastic with a higher index of refraction than the cladding. On that, the buffer is also a part of these fibers which protects the fiber from damage and moisture. The jacket is also holding one or more fiber in a cable. These fibers are the basic transmission medium for fiber-optic communication. These include the concept and classification of propagation modes along the fiber, single-mode condition, numerical aperture, mechanisms and specifications of optical attenuation and dispersion, as well as nonlinearities of optical fiber.
Optical fibers depend on the refractive index such as –
1) The classification based on the refractive index,
2) The classification based on the materials used, and
3) The classification based on the mode of propagation of light.
