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.

Materials that satisfy these requirements are glasses and plastics . The majority
of fibers are made of glass consisting of either silica ( SiO2 ) or a silicate . The
variety of available glass fibers ranges from high - loss glass fibers with large
GeO2 - B2O3 - SiO2 core ; B2O3 - SiO2 cladding Here , the notation GeO2 - SiO2
, for example , denotes a GeO2 - doped silica glass . The principal raw material
for silica is sand . Glass composed of pure silica is referred to as either silica ...
With the silica tube held at temperatures in the range of 1000 – 1200°C to reduce
mechanical stresses in the growing glass films , a moving microwave resonator
operating at 2 . 45 GHz generates a plasma inside the tube to activate the ...
