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.

4 Modulation of an LED The frequency response of an LED is largely determined
by the following three factors : the ... If the drive current is modulated at a
frequency w , the optical output power of the device will vary as24 , 25 P ( W ) =
Po [ 1 + ...
This value sets the upper limit to the direct modulation capability of the laser
diode . A laser diode can readily be pulse - modulated since the photon lifetime is
much smaller than the carrier lifetime . If the laser is completely turned off after
carriers are then combined and the resulting electrical signal is used to modulate
the optical carrier . ... The simplest form for optical fiber links is direct intensity
modulation , wherein the optical output from the source is modulated simply by ...
