Fiber Optic Communication Lab

FIBER OPTIC COMMUNICATION LABARATORY

The lab is equipped with optical simulation CAD tools such as OPTSIM and Photonics CAD to support a strong research  activity in this area.  Fiber optic work benches imported from New port Corporation is available. The projects carried out in this  laboratory covers a wide range of applications both in telecommunications and sensors with the use of both multimode and single-mode fibers.Fiber optic Communication laboratory supports UG and PG laboratory course
