Photonic Crystal Fiber

Famous quotes containing the words crystal and/or fiber:

    While that the sun with his beams hot
    Scorched the fruits in vale and mountain,
    Philon the shepherd, late forgot,
    Sitting beside a crystal fountain,
    Unknown. The Unfaithful Shepherdess (l. 1–4)

    I taught school in the early days of my manhood and I think I know something about mothers. There is a thread of aspiration that runs strong in them. It is the fiber that has formed the most unselfish creatures who inhabit this earth. They want three things only; for their children to be fed, to be healthy, and to make the most of themselves.
    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)
