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.

1 Fiber Types An optical fiber is a dielectric waveguide that operates at optical
frequencies . This fiber waveguide is normally cylindrical in form . It confines
electromagnetic energy in the form of light to within its surfaces and guides the
light in ...
5 Signal Distortion in Single - Mode Fibers For single - mode fibers , waveguide
dispersion is of importance and can be of the same order of magnitude as
material dispersion . To see this , let us compare the two dispersion factors . The
7 Phase - Array - Based WDM Devices A highly versatile WDM device is based
on using an arrayed waveguide grating . This device can function as a
multiplexer , a demultiplexer , a drop - and - insert element , or a wavelength
