Neuware - Within the past few decades, information technologies have been evolving at a tremendous rate, causing profound changes to our world and our ways of life. In particular, fiber optics has been playing an increasingly crucial role within the telecommunication revolution. Not only most long-distance links are fiber based, but optical fibers are increasingly approaching the individual end users, providing wide bandwidth links to support all kinds of data-intensive applications such as video, voice, and data services. As an engineering discipline, fiber optics is both fascinating and challenging. Fiber optics is an area that incorporates elements from a wide range of techno- gies including optics, microelectronics, quantum electronics, semiconductors, and networking. As a result of rapid changes in almost all of these areas, fiber optics is a fast evolving field. Therefore, the need for up-to-date texts that address this growing field from an interdisciplinary perspective persists. This book presents an overview of fiber optics from a practical, engineering perspective. Therefore, in addition to topics such as lasers, detectors, and optical fibers, several topics related to electronic circuits that generate, detect, and process the optical signals are covered. In other words, this book attempts to present fiber optics not so much in terms of a field of 'optics' but more from the perspective of an engineering field within 'optoelectronics. 374 pp. Englisch.

Synopsis: The book covers the area of fiber optics from an engineering perspective. Emphasis is placed on data conversion between electrical and optical domains and the way limitations in each domain affect the other domain. Techniques to improve the fidelity of this conversion (both from electrical to optical domain, and vise versa) are also covered. The first few chapters cover the required theoretical background including fundamentals of fiber optics communication, fiber optics networks, converting the electrical data to light, light transmission in the medium of fiber as well as converting light back to electrical signal. A critical chapter is dedicated to characterization of optical signals. The following chapters use the theoretical background to address the design of fiber optic transceivers. The author emphasizes issues that fiber optic engineers should be familiar with, but are rarely discussed in books because they belong to an area which is neither purely electrical nor optical. The last few chapters cover issues such as standards (ITU, IEEE, FSAN, etc.), test and measurement methodologies, and reliability (over temperature performance, aging, failure rates, shock and vibration, etc.).
