About this book

Dispersion management is a critical design criterion that characterizes the performance of an optical network, and has impacted almost every aspect of the physical layer of an optical transmission line. The past 10 years have seen an explosion in the variety of device effects exploited to obtain optimal performance from dispersion compensators, and this is the first book that deals exclusively with this technology. It starts with an exposition on the fundamental physics underlying dispersion and its effects on optical pulses, followed by at least one chapter devoted to each of the fiber-based dispersion-compensating devices that have either been deployed or are considered as serious candidates for future networks. The final section of this book then describes the systems-level impact of these devices, hence providing a one-stop reference for all aspects of optical-communication-network design pertaining to dispersion-management. Each chapter is written by the leading experts in the field, drawn from both academia as well as industry.

About the authors

Dr Siddharth Ramachandran obtained his Bachelor of Technology degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, in 1991, MS from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1993, and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana, in 1998. Since Nov. 1998, he has worked at Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies and subsequently OFS Laboratories, OFS-Fitel, first as a Member of Technical Staff, and since March 2003, as a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff. Dr. Ramachandran’s research focuses on fiber and fiber-grating devices in specialty, dispersion-tailored fibers. He was the technical-lead as well as team leader for Lucent Technologies efforts in defining next-generation dispersion-compensation solutions for future 40 Gb/s optical communications systems. He has authored over 90 refereed journal and conference publications, 2 book-chapters, 15 patent applications. Dr. Ramachandran has served on several conference committees, and was the program chair for the IEEE-LEOS Summer Topical meetings in 2006.

Dr. Ramachandran is a member of IEEE-LEOS.
