Provides an interdisciplinary approach to fiber optics
Emphasizes engineering and design perspectives, including insights from many years of design experience in the field of fiber optics
Includes simple pseudo-codes for simulation of electronic or optical circuits
Covers PON and FTTX (burst mode transceivers) which are relevant to the fast growing field of fiber-to-home. This sector is one of the biggest economical drives in the fiber optic industry, with little design material available for engineers
Addresses industrial trends and real-world applications. The last few chapters provide a valuable reference point for those who want to apply the knowledge in an industrial design environment
Fiber Optics Engineering discusses the theoretical and practical backgrounds of fiber optics while including insights that are usually gained with experience. The author provides an introduction to the area of fiber optics engineering. The text is straightforward, and complex mathematical equations are kept to a minimum.
Fundamental ideas are discussed in the first few introductory chapters. These include concepts such as the nature of light, foundations of fiber optics, analysis of electrical and optical signals and telecommunication networks. The critical blocks in a fiber optic system, diode lasers, optical fibers, photodetectors, and passive components, each have a dedicated chapter. The text examines optical transceivers from an electronics and circuit perspective. Emphasis is placed on circuit design and signal integrity, as related to optical transmission and reception. Included also are chapters on test and measurement, reliability, and standards.
Fiber Optics Engineering provides a valuable reference point both for those who want to become familiar with fiber optics as a fast evolving technology and for engineers who want to apply the material in an industrial design environment.
