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.

Analogous to copper cables, optical fiber cables can be installed either aerially,
in ducts, undersea, or buried directly in the ground, as Fig. 1-6 illustrates. As a
result of installation and/or manufacturing limitations, individual cable lengths will
When the proof stress is released within a finite duration, the C value should be
rewritten as C = y B (2-97) where y is a coefficient of slow-crack-growth effect
arising during the unloading period. 2.10 FIBER OPTIC CABLES In any practical
Steel wire which has a Young's modulus of 2 x 104 MPa has been extensively
used for reinforcing conventional electric cables and can also be employed for
optical fiber cables. For some applications it is desirable to use nonmetallic ...
