How It’s Made: Fiber Optics

How It's Made: Fiber OpticsOne of our rock-star engineers, Clark, sent me this video today because he thought it was really interesting- it shows how fiber optics are made.  I’d have to agree that it is a pretty fascinating video.

This video was featured on the Discovery Channel’s “How It’s Made” television series in an episode about fiber optics.  In this particular episode, employees take the viewer on a guided tour of the Browning, Texas Corning plant where fiber optics are manufactured.

  1. it really is such an interesting process! Optics is so interesting and a lot of people don’t realize how cool some of the stuff is. Thanks for the comment!


  2. Hi Kristin,
    Indeed, the video is fascinating. I never know this is how fiber optics cables are produced. The narrator mentioned something about the fiber optic being immune to electromagnetic interference and carry more information than the copper cables. This is an amazing technology!

    I have shared this comment in where this post was found.
