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.

where Brx is the 3-dB electrical bandwidth of the receiver and u(t) is the unit step
function which is 1 for t > 0 and 0 for / < 0. The rise time /„ of the receiver is usually
defined as the time interval between g(t) = 0. 1 and g(t) = 0.9. This is known as ...
^=[log2(,o/2)]-/2 where log2 X is the base-2 logarithm of X. What does this
equation show concerning the relationship between the amplifier gain and the
optical bandwidth? 1 1-6. Assume the gain profile of an optical amplifier is where
ko is ...
Among these are the link bandwidth, optical power requirements for a specific bit-
error rate, and crosstalk between optical channels. 12.6.1 Link Bandwidth If the N
transmitters in a WDM link, such as shown in Fig. 12-13, operate at bit rates of ...
