This book is written specifically for upper level courses in the theory and application of optical fiber communication technology offered in electrical engineering or physics departments. It progresses systematically from descriptions of the individual elements of a communication link to analyses of digital and analog networks designs - ending with discussions of measurement techniques for evaluating components and systems. This edition includes the most recent developments in single-mode fiber applications, analog transmission systems, fiber optical networks, and coherent transmissions as well as up-to-date coverage of such on-going areas of research as optical amplifiers and optical switching. The scope of the new edition has been broadened to include expanded discussions of components and devises and provide much more detail and analog systems.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
A comprehensive treatment of optical-link constituents such as optical fibers, light sources, photo detectors, connecting and coupling devices, and optical amplifiers.
The design principles of digital and analog optical fiber transmission links, including optical power budgets, signal rise times, line coding, and noise effects on system performance.
The operating principles of wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) and the components needed for its realization.
Descriptions of the architectures and the performance characteristics of optical networks for connecting users having a wide range of transmission needs.
Discussions of advanced optical communication techniques such as soliton transmission, optical CDMA, and ultrafast optical time-division multiplexing.
An entire chapter devoted to measurement standards, basic test equipment and techniques for verifying the operational characteristics of components and links.
A modeling and simulation program on CD-ROM, which is adapted for student use from Virtual Photonics' "Photonic Transmission Design Suite". This Windows based program allows students to examine the performance of key components and of basic links consisting of these components.
