Sunlight Resonance

  1. Feb 17, 2012 #1
    Here is my question: Can light of multiple wavelengths (for example sunlight) that is transferred through a fiber optic cable be amplified equally with resonance? If this is not possible, are there other methods besides resonance to achieve this effect. If optical resonance is used, how do the nature of the photons change if at all?

    The photons themselves wouldn't change at all. If you could amplify the light you would simply be adding more photons. I don't know if you could amplify it or not however.
