Current Topic:
Fiber Optics
sir,
optical fibres are most widely used to transmit messages.
Two optical fibres can transmit messages of 24,000 telephone calls.
They are light and the quantity of material requird is also very less.
For eg. few thousand kg of Cu wires will transmit the same message as 200gm of optical fibre will.

regards
