        ICT Center | A Simple Fiber-Optic Communications System

        In this video from the ICT Center, learn how rise-time analysis is performed to determine the maximum data rate of a fiber optic communications system. Animations and diagrams show how a transmitter, fiber, and receiver work together to transfer information and how component rise times and fiber dispersion contribute to total rise time.

        This media asset was adapted from "ICT Experiment 6: A Simple Fiber-Optic Communications System".
