DR. THOMAS MENSAH: AN INNOVATOR OF FIBER OPTICS TECHNOLOGIES

DR. THOMAS MENSAH: AN INNOVATOR OF FIBER OPTICS TECHNOLOGIES. The use of light pulses to transmit data through cables from one place to another is known as fiber optic communication. Compared to many other forms of data transmission, fiber optics has exceptionally low data loss, a lack of power issues when traveling long distances and carries a much higher amount of data. Telecommunications and the Internet have been greatly influenced by fiber optics technologies which have allowed those industries to mature with more robust products and services. With the arrival of February comes the return of our celebration of Black History Month, where we profile innovations by African-American inventors that have shaped our world
