Fundamentals of Optical Fiber Communication, Second Edition is a seven-chapter tutorial text that considers fiber optic technology as applied to communications systems. This book is based on lectures presented at an annual short course entitled "Fiber Optic Communication Systems" at the University of California at Santa Barbara. The first chapter provides an overview of the ideal optical fiber waveguide, its information carrying capacity, degree of imperfection, and propagation of perturbed waveguide leading to intermodal coupling of power. The next chapters describe the basic optical fiber cable configuration, the coupling components for optical fiber waveguides, and the electroluminescent sources for fiber systems. These topics are followed by discussions of the features and application of photodiodes, the development of a physical model for photodetection, circuit models for various detector types, and a statistical or noise model for optical receiver performance prediction. The concluding chapters describe the theory and practice of receiver and transmitter design, as well as the design considerations for multiterminal networks. This book will be of value to communications engineers, designers, and researchers.

Optical fibre communication is fast extending the boundaries of research laboratories and attaining the threshold of real-life applicability. The book attempts to provide a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of optical fibre communication. Organized into nine chapters, this book begins with a discussion of planar dielectric waveguide and proceeds to discuss optical fibre and the propagation of light through it. It also covers Erbium Doped Fibre Amplifier (EDFA), semiconductor optical sources and detectors, fibre optic communication systems, and fibre optic measurements. In the Second Edition, lucid presentation of the text has been maintained without compromising on the comprehension of the subject. Two new chapters on “advanced modulation formats for fibre optic communication systems” and “surface plasmon polaritons and photonic crystals” have been included which discuss topics such as fibre optic coupler, coherent optical communication, BER performance of coherent optical communication systems, differential phase modulation schemes with direct detection, surface plasmon polariton and photonic crystal. Besides, a number of chapters have been significantly revised. This book is primarily intended as a text for undergraduate students of Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, and Telecommunication Engineering. The book would also prove to be of immense benefit to postgraduate students of Physics and those preparing for AMIE and AMIETE exams. Key features • Lucid discussion of concepts, ensuring easy comprehensibility of even advanced topics to undergraduate students. • Numerical problems forming an integral part of the book, making it application-oriented. • Solutions to chapter-end numerical problems provided at the end of the book.

Fundamentals of Optical Fibersoffers students a timely, pedagogically consistent introduction to the fundamental principles of light propagation in fibers. In it, Professor John A. Buck reviews, in depth, fundamental waveguiding concepts, the influence of various fiber structures and materials on light transmission, nonlinear light propagation effects occurring in fibers, and various measurement techniques. Since the chief application of optical fibers is in communication systems, throughout the book the focus is on topics which pertain to that domain. In the first part of the text, the author lays the groundwork for later discussions with a detailed review of the relevant electromagnetic principles and how they apply to the analysis of wave propagation. He also introduces basic field equations and delineates the fundamental principles of dielectric wave-guides. In the second part, he explores the limitations of fiber transmission, paying particular attention to the problems of loss and dispersion. He reviews fabrication procedures and alternative fiber designs as they relate to minimizing loss and dispersion. And he presents field analysis methods for single mode and multimode fibers having graded index profiles. In the last part, Professor Buck reviews the basics of nonlinear optics and discusses the origins of nonlinear effects and the conditions under which they appear in fibers. This section also features a discussion of fiber amplifiers, along with a review of the fundamentals of light amplification by stimulated emission. Offering a well-balanced presentation of the basics of light propagation in fibers, and including real-world examples and end-of-chapter problems, Fundamentalsof Optical Fibers is an excellent text for senior- to graduate-level courses in electrical engineering or physics. It is accessible to anyone who has taken at least a one-semester course in electromagnetics at the undergraduate level.

This book describes the latest development in optical fiber devices, and their applications to sensor technology. Optical fiber sensors, an important application of the optical fiber, have experienced fast development, and attracted wide attentions in basic science as well as in practical applications. Sensing is often likened to human sense organs. Optical fiber can not only transport information acquired by sensors at high speed and large volume, but also can play the roles of sensing element itself. Compared with electric and other types of sensors, fiber sensor technology has unique merits. It has advantages over conventional bulky optic sensors, such as combination of sensing and signal transportation, smaller size, and possibility of building distributed systems. Fiber sensor technology has been used in various areas of industry, transportation, communication, security and defense, as well as daily life. Its importance has been growing with the advancement of the technology and the expansion of the scope of its application, a growth this book fully describes.
