- Light Guides:Many of the high precision medical applicances use fibre optics as the medium to show a strong beam of light at the required position during the surgurical treatments.
- Sensors:In many of the sensors like in reflectometer, the core material used in the sensor is nothing but an optical fibre itself.
- Power transmission: Although in experimental phase, but fibre optical fibres are capable of transmitting power from photovoltaic cells of a solar panel and convert the light into electricity.
