9780124105904: Optical Solitons: From Fibers to Photonic Crystals

The current research into solitons and their use in fiber optic communications is very important to the future of communications. Since the advent of computer networking and high speed data transmission technology people have been striving to develop faster and more reliable communications media. Optical pulses tend to broaden over relatively short distances due to dispersion, but solitons on the other hand are not as susceptible to the effects of dispersion, and although they are subject to losses due to attenuation they can be amplified without being received and re-transmitted.

This book is the first to provide a thorough overview of optical solitons. The main purpose of this book is to present the rapidly developing field of Spatial Optical Solitons starting from the basic concepts of light self-focusing and self-trapping. It will introduce the fundamental concepts of the theory of nonlinear waves and solitons in non-integrated but physically realistic models of nonlinear optics including their stability and dynamics. Also, it will summarize a number of important experimental verification of the basic theoretical predictions and concepts covering the observation of self-focusing in the earlier days of nonlinear optics and the most recent experimental results on spatial solitons, vortex solitons, and soliton interaction & spiraling.

* Introduces the fundamental concepts of the theory of nonlinear waves and solitons through realistic models

* Material is based on authors' years of experience actively working in and researching the field

* Summarizes the most important experimental verification of the basic theories, predictions and concepts of this ever evolving field from the earliest studies to the most recent

Review:

Here, readers can obtain all the important and theoretical and experimental information pertaining to optical solitons in a single, well-organized book that offers complete coverage of every variety of soliton wave. For the benefit of prosepctive readers, the book presents detailed experimental and theoretical information on vortex, vector, parametric, descrete, incoherent and magnetic solutions, as well as on various categories of solitons contained witinin these general catagories...A good table of contents is supported by a complete index. There are hundreds of references at the end of each chapter. There are also many useful graphs and figures in each chapter. Although there are no problems for the reader to solve, this volume could certainly serve as a textbook. The target readership of electrical engineers, optical engineers, and physicists interested in the area of optical solitons have a useful new book from two authors who continue to be at the leading edge of their field.
