Absorption | Alker Fibre Optic Specialists

Absorption

Absorption is defined as the portion of attenuation resulting from the conversion of optical power into another energy form, such as heat. Absorption in optical fibers is explained by three factors: imperfections in the atomic structure of the fiber material, the intrinsic or basic fiber material properties and the extrinsic (presence of impurities) fiber material properties.
