Optical Fibers Bring New Medical Applications to Light – Nasa Tech Briefs

Many of today’s medical applications use high-quality silica optical fiber. Because a broad range of optical fibers is available to serve this market, users must carefully choose the right fiber to avoid delays in product design and time to market, along with increased development costs. Developers design optical fibers to guide light by using total internal reflection. This reflection occurs when light propagates from one medium with a higher refractive index to another with a lower index.
