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.

Gerd Keiser. Since fiber optics technology involves the emission, transmission,
and detection of light, we begin our discussion by first considering the nature of
light and then we shall review a few basic laws and definitions of optics.1
the particle theory nor the wave theory of light is appropriate. Instead, we must
turn to quantum theory, which indicates that optical radiation has particle as well
as wave properties. The particle nature arises from the observation that light ...
When light traveling in a certain medium is reflected off an optically denser
material (one with a higher refractive index), the process is referred to as external
reflection. Conversely, the reflection of light off of less optically dense material (
