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.

However , in optical fibers the core - cladding boundary conditions lead to a
coupling between the electric and magnetic field components . This gives rise to
hybrid modes , which makes optical waveguide analysis more complex than

Qualitatively , these curvature loss effects can be explained by examining the
modal electric field distributions shown in Fig . 2-14 . Recall that this figure shows
that any bound core mode has an evanescent field tail in the cladding which ...
