From the Back Cover:

The fifth edition of Fiber Optic Communications by Joseph C. Palais marks the book's twentieth anniversary. In the 20 years since the first edition of the book was published, fiber optics systems have become more flexible and less costly and information capacity and transmission length have increased. This edition includes the many new and improved components and system architectures that have been added to the fiber-optic-communications designer's tool kit.

New component discussions describe
  • Improved fibers that more fully utilize the optical spectrum
  • Non-zero dispersion shifted fibers
  • Graded-index polymer fibers
  • Raman amplifiers
  • Erbium-doped waveguide amplifiers
  • Arrayed waveguide gratings
  • Electroabsorption modulators
  • Optical micro-electro-mechanical (MEMs) components
  • Dispersion compensators
  • Tunable light sources
  • Tunable filters
  • Small-form-factor connectors
  • Non-adhesive splices
Expanded coverage of system strategies and considerations include
  • Optical time-division multiplexing
  • Dense and coarse wavelength-division multiplexing
  • Polarization mode dispersion
  • External modulation

The fifth edition also includes new problems, new figures, new worked examples, and an updated bibliography.
