About this Book:
From the groundbreaking work on usage of glass-fibers as a medium of data transmission by Charles Kao, to modern high-capacity telecommunication networks, the field of optical fiber communications has progressed in leaps and bounds. The fifth edition of Optical Fiber Communications captures the essence of this dynamic and exciting subject area by presenting the fundamental principles of optical fiber technology and then gradually developing upon them to capture the most sophisticated modern communication networks.
Key Features of this Books:
- Design principles of digital and analog optical fiber transmission links
- Principles and components for Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM)
- Architectures and performance characteristics of optical networks
