Optical Fiber Communications
The third edition of this popular text and reference book presents the fundamental principles for understanding and applying optical fiber technology to sophisticated modern telecommunication systems.
Optical-fiber-based telecommunication networks have become a major information-transmission-system, with high capacity links encircling the globe in both terrestrial and undersea installations. Numerous passive and active optical devices within these links perform complex transmission and networking functions in the optical domain, such as signal amplification, restoration, routing, and switching. Along with the need to understand the functions of these devices comes the necessity to measure both component and network performance, and to model and stimulate the complex behavior of reliable high-capacity networks.

Solving Maxwell's equations shows that , in addition to supporting a finite number
of guided modes , the optical fiber waveguide has an infinite continuum of
radiation modes that are not trapped in the core and guided by the fiber but are
In addition to using multiple wavelengths to increase link capacity and flexibility ,
the use of wavelength - sensitive optical routing devices makes it possible to use
wavelength as another dimension , in addition to time and space , in designing ...
18 Since ASE originates ahead of the photodiode , it gives rise to three different
noise components in an optical receiver in addition to the normal thermal noise of
the photodetector . This occurs because the photocurrent consists of a number ...
