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.

As the core and cladding modes propagate along the fiber , mode coupling
occurs between the cladding modes and the higher - order core modes . This
coupling occurs because the electric fields of the guided core modes are not
Intramodal dispersion or chromatic dispersion is pulse spreading that occurs
within a single mode . The spreading arises from the finite spectral emission
width of an optical source . This phenomenon is also known as group velocity
We shall begin by specifying a data rate of 20 Mb / s and a bit - error rate of 10 - 9
( i . e . , at most one error can occur for every 109 bits sent ) . ... Assume further
that a 1 - dB loss occurs when the fiber flylead is connected to the cable and ...
