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.

In this case , the light wave can be represented as a plane wave , and its
direction of travel can be indicated by a light ray which is drawn perpendicular to
the phase front . Thus , large - scale optical effects such as reflection and
refraction can ...
Figure 4 - 22 shows the three basic optical - confinement methods used for
bounding laser light in the lateral direction . In the first structure , a narrow
electrode stripe ( less than 8 um wide ) runs along the length of the diode . The
injection of ...
Edge - emitting LEDs are used for these applications since they have a laserlike
output pattern in the direction perpendicular to the junction plane . To rigorously
evaluate the coupling between an LED and a single - mode fiber we need to use
