## Optical fiber communicationsThe 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. |

**Equations**for Step-Index Fibers* We now use the above results to

find the guided modes in a step-index fiber. A standard mathematical procedure

for solving

solved by numerical techniques, its solution for any particular mode will provide

all the characteristics of that mode. We shall now consider this
