This book provides a comprehensive account of fiber-optic communication systems. The 3rd edition of this book is used worldwide as a textbook in many universities. This 4th edition incorporates recent advances that have occurred, in particular two new chapters. One deals with the advanced modulation formats (such as DPSK, QPSK, and QAM) that are increasingly being used for improving spectral efficiency of WDM lightwave systems. The second chapter focuses on new techniques such as all-optical regeneration that are under development and likely to be used in future communication systems. All other chapters are updated, as well.

This new and fully revised Fifth Edition of Fiber Optic Communications incorporates coverage of significant advances made in the fiber industry in recent years to present a comprehensive and in-depth introduction to the basics of communicating with optical fiber transmission lines. Readers will learn system design as well as operating principles, characteristics, and application of the components that comprise fiber-optic systems. New and expanded topics include Raman amplifier, erbium-doped waveguide amplifier, the arrayed waveguide grating, electroabsorption modulator, optical micro-electro-mechanical (MEMs) components, dispersion compensation, tunable light sources, tunable filters, optical time-division multiplexing, dense and course wavelength-division multiplexing, increased utilization of the optical spectrum, and emphasis on external modulation. Other topics include fiber lasers and optical amplifiers, vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser diodes, dense wavelength-division multiplexing, fiber Bragg grating technology, new component descriptions (fiber attenuator, circulator, and polarization controller), new phenomena descriptions (polarization mode dispersion, mode-partition noise), and power penalty. Expanded discussions of additional topics include polarization effects in fiber systems, integrated optic components, practical fiber connectors and how to minimize reflections. For practicing design engineers concerned with the selection and application of components and with the design of applications systems. For professionals involved with fiber optics, including high-level engineering decision makers, project managers, technicians, marketing and sales personnel, and teachers.

Fiber-optic communication systems have advanced dramaticallyover the last four decades, since the era of copper cables,resulting in low-cost and high-bandwidth transmission. Fiber opticsis now the backbone of the internet and long-distancetelecommunication. Without it we would not enjoy the benefits ofhigh-speed internet, or low-rate international telephone calls. This book introduces the basic concepts of fiber-opticcommunication in a pedagogical way. The important mathematicalresults are derived by first principles rather than citing researcharticles. In addition, physical interpretations and real-worldanalogies are provided to help students grasp the fundamentalconcepts. Key Features: Lucid explanation of key topics such as fibers, lasers, andphotodetectors. Includes recent developments such as coherent communication anddigital signal processing. Comprehensive treatment of fiber nonlinear transmission. Worked examples, exercises, and answers. Accompanying website with PowerPoint slides and numericalexperiments in MATLAB. Intended primarily for senior undergraduates and graduatesstudying fiber-optic communications, the book is also suitable as aprofessional resource for researchers working in the field offiber-optic communications.

Developed as an introductory course, this up-to-date text discusses the major building blocks of present-day fiber-optic systems and presents their use in communications and sensing. Starting with easy-to-understand ray propagation in optical fibers, the book progresses towards the more complex topics of wave propagation in planar and cylindrical waveguides. Special emphasis has been given to the treatment of single-mode fibers the backbone of present-day optical communication systems. It also offers a detailed treatment of the theory behind optoelectronic sources (LEDs and injection laser diodes), detectors, modulators, and optical amplifiers. Contemporary in terms of technology, it presents topics such as erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs) and wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) along with dense WDM. Building upon these fundamental principles, the book introduces the reader to system design considerations for analog and digital fiber-optic communications. Emphasis ha s also been given to fiber-optic sensors and laser-based systems along with their industrial and other applications. This student-friendly text would be very useful to undergraduate students pursuing instrumentation, electronics, and communication engineering. It would also prove to be a good text for postgraduate students of physics.

Market_Desc: Although written primarily for graduate students, the book can also be used for an undergraduate course at the senior level with an appropriate selection of topics. The potential readership is likely to consist of senior undergraduate students, graduate students enrolled in the M. S. and Ph.D. degree programs, engineers and technicians involved with the telecommunications industry, and scientists working in the fields of fiber optics and optical communications. Special Features: · The third edition of a proven best seller · The book is accompanied by a Solutions Manual · A comprehensive, up to date account of fiber-optic communication systems · Book is accompanied by CD-ROM providing applications based on text About The Book: This book is intended to fulfill the requirements of a graduate-level textbook in the field of optical communications. An attempt is made to include as much recent material as possible so that students are exposed to the recent advances in this exciting field. The book can also serve as a reference text for researchers already engaged in or wishing to enter the field of optical fiber communications. The reference list at the end of each chapter is more elaborate than what is common for a typical textbook. The listing of recent research papers should be useful for researchers using this book as a reference. At the same time, students can benefit from it if they are assigned problems requiring reading of original research papers. A set of problems is included at the end of each chapter to help both teacher and student.
