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.

In the second approach, light is treated as an electromagnetic wave which
propagates along the optical fiber waveguide. This involves solving Maxwell's
equations subject to the cylindrical boundary conditions of the fiber. 2.1 THE
points in the wave train which have the same phase. Generally, one draws wave
fronts passing through either the maxima or the minima of the wave, such as the
peak or trough of a sine wave, for example. Thus, the wave fronts (also called ...
