Single-mode and multimode optical fibres are used in fibre optic communication systems. The diameter of the core, which impacts the number of light modes that can be broadcasted and the range over which the signal can be transferred, is the primary difference between the two. Read this article to find out more about Single-Mode Fiber and Multimode Fiber and how they are different from each other. What is Single-Mode Fiber? SMF stands for single-mode fiber. It can transmit only one mode of light because of its small core diameter. Single-mode fibres are used in cable television and backbone networks. It ... Read More

When it comes to plumbing, there are various types of piping available. Each type has its own unique advantages and disadvantages. Two of the most popular materials used for plumbing are PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) and PB (polybutylene). Polybutylene (PB) and cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) are two types of flexible plastic piping that are used for water supply lines in plumbing systems. Both PB and PEX pipes are made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), but the two types of piping have different manufacturing processes. PB piping is made by extrusion, a process in which molten plastic is forced through a die to create ... Read More
