Fiber optic transmission and communication are technologies that are constantly growing and becoming more modernized and increasingly being used in the modern day industries. Dispersion occurs when the light traveling down a fiber optic cable "Spreads out," becomes longer in wavelength and eventually dissipates. Attenuation, a reduction in the transmitted power, has long been a problem for the fiber optics community. However, researchers have established three main sources of this loss: absorption, scattering, and dispersion. Fiber To The Home (FTTH) technology is one of the main research objectives of the lasts years in optical fiber communication.
