Abstract: Attenuation in fiber optics also known as transmission loss is the reduction in intensity of light beamwidth request respect to distance travelled through a transmission medium. Attenuation coefficient in fiber optics usually use units of db /km. The medium is typically fiber of silica glass that confines the incident light beam to the inside Attenuation in optical fiber is caused primarily by both scattering and absorption.
