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.

5.5 FIBER SPLICING A fiber splice is a permanent or semipermanent joint
between two fibers. These are typically used to create long optical links or in
situations where frequent connection and disconnection are not needed. In

This technique can produce very low splice losses (typically averaging less than
0.06 dB). However, care must be exercised in this technique, since surface
