This book (in two volumes) has been the "bible" for optical communications engineers for 32 years. Since the publication of "Optical Fiber Telecommunications V (OFTV)" in 2008, many new technologies have evolved that will form the basis of future optical engineering applications in the communications industry. Written by active authorities in the field both from industry and academia, "OFT V1 A&B" includes all the newest and most important emerging optical technologies. With this book, engineers will have all the key technologies at their fingertips for future optical components and systems development. It features: all the latest technologies and techniques for developing future components and systems; edited by two winners of the highly prestigious OSA/IEEE John Tyndal award and a President of IEEE's Lasers & Electro-Optics Society (7,000 members); and written by leading experts in the field, it is the most authoritative and comprehensive reference on optical engineering the market.

"It consists of two impressive volumes. It covers quite a few advances and novelties in the field, such as streaming, routing, and switching in optical networks; higher-order modulation; and space division multiplexing.It requires a reasonably knowledgeable reader.searching for a particular topic of interest to study in more detail."--Computing Reviews, May 20, 2014 "Optical fiber communications researchers and engineers, most at corporations but some in academic and public laboratories, update the compendium of current knowledge from the 2008 fifth edition. This second of two volumes concentrates on systems and networks."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013 "For more than three decades, the OFT series has served as the comprehensive primary resource covering progress in the science and technology of optical fiber telecoms. It has been essential for the bookshelves of researchers and engineers active in the field. OFT VI provides updates on considerable progress in established disciplines, as well as introductions to important new topics. [OFT VI] . generates a value that is even higher than that of the sum of its chapters."--Herwig Kogelnik, Vice President Adjunct, Bell Labs, Alcatel-Lucent "Optical fiber telecommunications is the Internet's "silver bullet". Without [its] innovations, we would not be enjoying today's abundance of bandwidth and the Internet's many unforeseen applications. [This field's] amazing pace of innovation has been long sustained due partially to this historic book series now extended by OFT VI. This series has long served to help organize, communicate, and set the agenda for innovations, thereby accelerating them. [For example, 100Mbps Ethernet] . was carried on optical fibers in the 1970s. Today, we have standardized 100Gbps Ethernet. Who knows where OFT VI will lead, but surely to Terabit Ethernet, and soon."--Bob Metcalfe, Ethernet inventor and Professor, University of Texas at Austin "This sixth edition . is not a simple update of this technical field, but it is extending its coverage to include new materials, devices, systems, and applications. It is the next step forward to cover the entire photonics networking technology field that supports our information-based society. I strongly recommend this must-have book to both academic and industrial readers."--Hideo Kuwahara, Fellow, Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. "This field . continues its amazing rate of technological progress as it transforms the world's economic infrastructure. . In order [for new businesses and services] to benefit from these advances, it is essential to understand the new technologies and their potential to transform the world. In these volumes, the authors continue the outstanding task of bringing together . many of the world's leading technologists in a manner that offers lucid descriptions of the most important recent innovations. This excellent and unique book belongs in the library of all those involved in optical communications and their applications."--Henry Kressel, Managing Director, Warburg PincusAbout the Author:
Ivan Kaminow retired from Bell Labs in 1996 after a 42-year career. He conducted seminal studies on electrooptic modulators and materials, Raman scattering in ferroelectrics, integrated optics, semiconductor lasers (DBR, ridge-waveguide InGaAsP and multi-frequency), birefringent optical fibers, and WDM networks. Later, he led research on WDM components (EDFAs, AWGs and fiber Fabry-Perot Filters), and on WDM local and wide area networks. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a recipient of the IEEE Edison Medal, OSA Ives Medal, and IEEE Photonics Award. Since 2004, he has been Adjunct Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. Ivan Kaminow retired from Bell Labs in 1996 after a 42-year career.

Since 2004, he has been Adjunct Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. Tingye Li retired from AT&T in 1998 after a 41-year career at Bell Labs and AT&T Labs. His seminal work on laser resonator modes is considered a classic. Since the late 1960s, he and his groups have conducted pioneering studies on lightwave technologies and systems. He led the work on amplified WDM transmission systems and championed their deployment for upgrading network capacity. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a foreign member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. He is a recipient of the IEEE David Sarnoff Award, IEEE/OSA John Tyndall Award, OSA Ives Medal/Quinn Endowment, AT&T Science and Technology Medal, and IEEE Photonics Award. Alan Willner has worked at AT&T Bell Labs and Bellcore, and he is Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern California. He received the NSF Presidential Faculty Fellows Award from the White House, Packard Foundation Fellowship, NSF National Young Investigator Award, Fulbright Foundation Senior Scholar, IEEE LEOS Distinguished Lecturer, and USC University-Wide Award for Excellence in Teaching. He is a Fellow of IEEE and OSA, and he has been President of the IEEE LEOS, Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE/OSA J. of Lightwave Technology, Editor-in-Chief of Optics Letters, Co-Chair of the OSA Science & Engineering Council, and General Co-Chair of the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics.
