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.

A typical waveguide dispersion curve for this type of fiber is depicted in Fig . 3 -
24a . Figure 3 - 24b gives the resultant total dispersion - flattened characteristic .

The second term gives the spontaneously generated photons . The power
resulting from these photons is not mode - selective , but is spread over all the
possible modes of the volume , which are on the order of 108 modes . Next = ? 4 .
Verify that Eq . ( 5 - 22 ) gives the common - core area of the two axially
misaligned step - index fibers shown in Fig . 5 - 10 . If d = 0 . 1a , what is the
coupling efficiency ? 5 - 10 . Consider the three fibers having the properties listed
in Table P5 ...
