✅ 1. Single-mode fiber:
◼ Core: Smaller core diameter (around 8.3 microns) for precise light transmission.
◼ Light source: Often used with lasers for long distances and higher bandwidths.
◼ Applications: Long-distance data transmission

✅ 2. Multimode fiber:
◼ Core: Larger core diameter (50 or 62.5 microns) allowing for easier light injection.
◼ Light source: Can utilize LEDs or lasers, but LEDs are common for shorter runs due to wider light acceptance.
◼ Applications: Shorter distances

✅ 3. Dispersion-shifted single-mode fiber (DSF):
◼ Specialization: Designed to minimize a specific type of signal distortion called “chromatic dispersion.”
◼ Applications: Used in high-bandwidth applications where minimizing signal distortion is critical.

✅ 4. Non-zero dispersion-shifted fiber (NZ-DSF):
◼ Specialization: Offers a controlled amount of chromatic dispersion, useful for specific transmission technologies.
◼ Applications: Used in some long-distance and wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) applications.

✅ 5. Bend-insensitive single-mode fiber (BI-SMF):
◼ Specialization: More resistant to signal loss caused by bending, making it suitable for tight cable routing scenarios.
◼ Applications: Data centers, building backbones, and other environments with tight cable bends.
