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.

The factor is the z component of the wave propagation constant k = 2n/k and is
the main parameter of interest in describing fiber modes. For guided modes, P
can assume only certain discrete values, which are determined from the
The condition required for wave propagation in the dielectric slab is that all points
on the same phase front of a plane wave must be in phase. This means that the
phase change occurring in ray 1 when traveling from point A to point B minus ...
2.5.2 Propagation Modes in Single-Mode Fibers As described in Sec. 2.4.8, in
any ordinary single-mode fiber there are actually two independent, degenerate
propagation modes.34,41"43. These modes are very similar but their polarization
