Title: Light at the End of the Tunnel: An Introduction to the Study of Fiber Optics
Url: http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/ceramics/e.html
Publisher: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering
Description: The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this experiment on fiber optics. The lesson aims to show that light will travel down a glass tube because of internal reflection. This module will help students understand the physical properties that allow fiber optics technology to work.

The lesson includes a step by step explanation of the laboratory procedure, discussion questions and a link to a video clip.
