OPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS ENGINEERING FROM THE LEADING EXPERTS IN THE FIELD
With their proven ability to provide both enormous speed and capacity, fiber optic networks have become the hands-down technology favorite for capacity-intensive broadband access applications. Business Week estimates the current fiber-optic networking market at an incredible $16.1 billion. Understanding fiber optical communications engineering has become must know information for engineers, engineering managers, researchers, and students. This authoritative reference, culled from the pages of the OSA's renowned Handbook of Optics, offers the combined expertise of a team of international experts to give you the answers you need to ride the fiber optics wave to success.
Prepared under the auspices of the Optical Society of America, Fiber Optics Handbook includes detailed, expert coverage of every essential topic in what has become the hottest field in telecom:
- WDM (Wave Division Multiplexing) and DWDM (Dense Wave Multiplexing)
- Optical Fiber Amplifiers
- Fiber Optic Communications Links
- Tapered-Fiber Couplers, MUX, and deMUX
- Optical Time-Division Multiplexed Communications Networks
- Infrared Fibers
- Optical Fiber Sensors
- Fiber-Optic Communications Standards
- Sources, Modulators, and Detectors
- And much more.
