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.

CHAPTER 7 OPTICAL RECEIVER OPERATION Having discussed the
characteristics and operation of photodetectors in the previous chapter, we now
turn our attention to the optical receiver. An optical receiver consists of a
The calculation of the error probability for a digital optical communication receiver
differs from that of conventional electric systems. This is because of the discrete
quantum nature of the optical signal and also because of the probabilistic ...
As an example of the limiting conditions, consider a link with a laser transmitter
and a pin photodiode receiver having the following characteristics: where Pc is
the optical power coupled into the fiber. To see the effects of the different noise ...
