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.

5.6 OPTICAL FIBER CONNECTORS A wide variety of optical fiber connectors
has evolved for numerous different applications. Their uses range from simple
single-channel fiber-to-fiber connectors in a benign location to multichannel ...
5.6.1 Connector Types Connectors are available in screw-on, bayonet-mount,
and push-pull configurations.55,63"74 These include both single-channel and
multichannel assemblies for cable-to-cable and for cable-to-circuit card
13-11, where the launch and detector couplings are made through connectors.
The wavelength-tunable light source is coupled to a short length of fiber that has
the same basic characteristics as the fiber to be tested. For multimode fibers, a ...
