Use of optisim software to observe effect of different sources in optical fiber
Pratik P. Tawde
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.
