Synopsis: This edition of the text offers a pragmatic approach to the study of fibre optics in communication. The text integrates diverse elements of fibre optics and provides a picture of how they are used in fibre optics communication, by introducing the terminology used and describing the building blocks of an optical fibre system. The text permits the reader to process initial design of optical links and to understand the tradeoffs made in designing and using a fibre optic communication line. This edition expands discussion of non-linearity, includes coverage of the latest developments in the field including new material on solitons, dispersion compensation techniques and fibre gratings, and also covers ATM, broadening the network applications covered to include banking together with computers and telecommunications.
