Steve Hindy, "The Craft Beer Revolution: How a Band of Microbrewers is Transforming..."
Steve Hindy, founder of the Brooklyn Brewery, discusses his latest book "The Craft Beer Revolution: How a Band of Microbrewers Is Transforming the World's Favorite Drink."

Today, there are more than 2,700 craft bre

2.4.2 Dispersion in single-mode fibre

Because there is only one mode in single-mode fibre, there is no multimode distortion but pulses are spread by dispersion.

Dispersion is the effect of different frequencies propagating at different speeds, and there are various mechanisms in optical fibre which mean that in general a fibre is dispersive. Given that dispersion takes place, a transmitted pulse will be spread because different frequency components in the pulse will take different lengths of time to propagate

Explore21: Expedition to the Solomon Islands—The Expedition Begins
The ocean waters surrounding the South Pacific’s Solomon Islands are home to diverse communities of fish, corals, and other animals. Many of these marine species can absorb light and emit it as another color, a process called biofluorescence. American Museum of Natural History scientists dove deep to investigate creatures that illuminate the ocean, and to better understand how and why they transform light.
