Guide for Fiber Optics

A multiple grooved guide 10 is shown for holding fiber optics 11. It also establishes controlled radii 12 for bringing selected fiber optics out of the channels.

Fiber optics can be stressed to only a certain minimum radius in accordance with the material and the fiber-optic diameter. The fixed guide 10 insures that breakouts 13 do not overly stress the fiber optics, and light transmission is optimized. A cover 14 holds the fiber optics in place.
