Father Of Fiber Optics Charles K. Kao's 88th Birthday
Father Of Fiber Optics Charles K. Kao's 88th Birthday 

As the father and teacher of fiber optics, K. Kao's is believed.  A British American physical giant whose innovations revolutionized global communications and laid the groundwork for today's high-speed Internet. 

Charles Kuen Kao was born on this day in 1933 in Shanghai, China. Drawn to intellectual work early in life with notable academic success, he went on to study electrical engineering in England. He supported his graduate studies as an engineer at Standard Telephones and Cables Ltd., where his colleagues invented the laser in 1960.  The father of fiber optics, Charles K. Kao's full name is Charles Kuen kao, he was born on this day in 1933 in Shanghai, China.  Charles K. Kao had studied electrical engineering in England and supported his graduate studies as an engineer at Standard Telephone & Cables Ltd, where his department invented the laser in 1960.

As soon as Charles K. Kao received his doctorate, Kao and his fellow worker George Hockham published a 1966 special paper showing that fibers made from pure glass could carry information over long distances using lasers.  Kao led the development of this revolutionary technology, and in 1977, the first telephone network carried live signals via optical fiber.  By the 1980s, Kao was overseeing the performance of fiber-optic networks around the world.

Kao was a dedicated educator in addition to being a trailblazing researcher. Beginning in 1987, he spent nearly a decade as Vice-Chancellor of The Chinese University of Hong Kong and founded Hong Kong’s Independent Schools Foundation. Kao’s landmark research in the 1960s earned him a joint Nobel Prize in Physics in 2009 and cleared the path for the over 900 million miles of fiber-optic cables that carry massive quantities of data across the globe today.
