FibLux will be a fiber optics manufacturer and wholesaler. It will be a b-to-b company with a strength of 20 to 25 people. It will be based in Luxembourg. With low taxes and other incentives, it seems to be the best country for establishing our business. Furthermore, its strategic location will facilitate transactions, hence assuring our quick response to client's needs.
FibLux came into being thanks to the vision of Gerard Krill, a former researcher in Physics and who later worked as a consultant. He is convinced that a blend of scientific innovation and management/marketing skills is required to be competitive in the Telecommunications sector. It is under his leadership that we will forge ourselves a reputation. This business plan sets out our strategy and details our future activities.
There will be a General Manager. Head of the management team and coordinator of daily transactions, he will also be accountable to investors for the ongoing of the business. He will be assisted by a secretary in his numerous tasks. When starting operation, FibLux will be composed of 4 departments: Production, Sales, Finance and R&D (Research & Development); each headed by a manager who will hold weekly meetings with the General Manager.
The manufacturing plant will be operated by about 15 technicians and machinists. They will be qualified to carry out the maintenance and troubleshooting when necessary. They will be supervised by two engineers in their job.
[...] At FibLux we will overcome this problem by using a new technology: the “Ytterbium Doped Fiber” (YDF). The YDF consists of incorporating Ytterbium atoms in the glass, so as to amplify the signal. These atoms have special physical properties that allow them to intensify electromagnetic radiation. Thus using the YDF, the signal is auto-amplified without using electronic devices. In fact the fiber will be doped all along its length. It is a completely passive system which doesn't need any supportive technology. [...]
[...] FibLux will thus emerge as a global fiber optics system provider and will gain enough strength and experience to compete on the global market of the ICT's. Finance We foresee an increase in sales after a relative initial stability. Once our products are known and marketing strategy implemented, sales will be boosted. Initial expenses will be relatively high compared to those of the forthcoming years due to the purchase of manufacturing and office equipment and high marketing expenditures during the first year.

[...] As the gasses flow inside the tube, they react to the heat by forming solid sub micron particles, called "soot," in the vicinity of the heat zone. Once the soot is formed, it is deposited on the inner wall of the tube. As the burner traverses over the deposited soot, the heat transforms these solid white particles into pure, transparent glass, in a process called vitrification. The deposited material will form the core region of the optical fiber. The process is repeated for many hours as each subsequent core layer is formed. [...]
