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.

In low- and medium-loss fibers the core material is generally glass and is
surrounded by either a glass or a plastic cladding. ... As the name implies, a
single-mode fiber sustains only one mode of propagation, whereas multimode
fibers contain ...
Another discrepancy between the ray optics approach and the modal analysis
occurs when an optical fiber is uniformly bent with ... Typical values range from 1
to 3 percent for multimode fibers and from 0.2 to 1.0 percent for single-mode
Structural inhomogeneities and defects created during fiber fabrication can also
cause scattering of light out of the fiber. These defects ... The losses of multi-
mode fibers are generally higher than those of single-mode fibers. This is a result
