Optical Fiber Communications by Gerd E. Keiser
9780070336179 This book is written specifically for upper level courses in the theory and application of optical fiber communication technology offered in electrical engineering or physics departments. It progresses systematically from descriptions of the individual elements of a communication link to analyses of digital and analog networks designs - ending with discussions of measurement techniques for evaluating components and systems. This edition includes the most recent developments in single-mode fiber applications, analog transmission systems, fiber optical networks, and coherent transmissions as well as up-to-date coverage of such on-going areas of research as optical amplifiers and optical switching. The scope of the new edition has been broadened to include expanded discussions of components and devises and provide much more detail and analog systems.
