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.

9.1 OVERVIEW OF ANALOG LINKS Figure 9-1 shows the basic elements of an
analog link. The transmitter contains either an LED or a laser diode optical
source. As noted in Sec. 4.4 and shown in Fig. 4-35, in analog applications, one
