Remote Spectroscopy in the Visible Using Fibers on the Optical Internet Network
Ribeiro, Rafael A. S.; de Oliveira, Anderson R.; Zilio, Sergio C.
IEEE Transactions on Education, v53 n4 p608-612 Nov 2010
The work presented here demonstrates the feasibility of using the single-mode fibers of an optical Internet network to deliver visible light between separate laboratories as a way to perform remote spectroscopy in the visible for teaching purposes. The coupling of a broadband light source into the single-mode fiber (SMF) and the characterization of optical losses as a function of the wavelength are discussed. Sample spectra were measured with a portable spectrometer controlled by an acquisition program developed with the LabVIEW software that allows the data to be collected and analyzed. (Contains 8 figures.)
