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.

This relationship gives the steady - state electron density in the active region
when a constant current is flowing through it . The internal quantum efficiency in
the active region is the fraction of the electron - hole pairs that recombine
The theoretical coupling efficiency that can be achieved is based on energy and
radiance conservation principles . 14 This efficiency is usually determined by the
size of the fiber . For a fiber of radius a and numerical aperture NA , the ...
Two important characteristics of a photodetector are its quantum efficiency and its
response speed . These parameters depend on the material band gap , the
operating wavelength , and the doping and thickness of the p , i , and n regions of
