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.

Thus, the index at the peak of the pulse will be slightly different than the value in
the wings of the pulse. The leading edge will see a positive dn/dt, whereas the
trailing edge will see a negative dn/dt. This temporally varying index change ...
In an optical communication system, solitons are very narrow, high-intensity
optical pulses that retain their shape through the interaction of balancing pulse
dispersion with the nonlinear properties of an optical fiber. If the relative effects of
That is, the output pulse response pout(t) of the fiber can be calculated through
the convolution (denoted by *) of the input pulse #„(') and the power impulse
function h(t) of the fiber. The period T between the input pulses should be taken
to be ...
