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 selectively diffused construction is shown in Fig. 4-24a. Here, a chemical
dopant, such as zinc for GaAlAs lasers and cadmium for InGaAsP lasers, is
diffused into the active layer immediately below the metallic contact stripe. The
The variation in /tn with temperature is 0.8 percent/°C, as is shown in Fig. 4-32.
Smaller dependences of /tn on temperature have been demonstrated for GaAlAs
quantum-well heterostructure lasers. For these lasers, To can be as high as ...
typically measured from the 10- to the 90-percent points of the leading edge of
the output pulse, as is shown in Fig. 6-11. For fully depleted photodiodes the rise
time rr and fall time x/ are generally the same. However, they can be different at ...
