Implementation of Dual Use Fiber Optic Communications Laboratories

Akram Ahmad Abu-aisheh, Sameer Khader, Omar Hasan


Given the wide use of fiber optic technology in industry and high-end consumer electronics, the use of optical fiber should be more widely taught; however, limited available resources in the provision of laboratory hardware has increasingly marginalized the educational quality of fiber optic communications courses. This paper presents two models for implementing fiber optic communications laboratories for both on-site and distance learning environments. The dual use of these set-ups allows for a highly cost effective and pedagogically rigorous mechanism of instruction for students.
