9780070382794: Fiber Optics Communications

The first comprehensive applied book in five years on this rapidly-changing area of telecommunications, here is the only resource capable of bringing you fully up to speed on the latest developments in fiber optic communication systems (FOCS). Designed to help you master the mathematics and statistics needed to create high-performance FOCS, Fiber Optic Communications offers current, in-depth coverage of optical amplifiers, optical detectors, wave-division multiplexing, optical heterodyne detection (OHD) systems, the pros and cons of OHD receivers versus direct detection receivers, and the design and performance of a proposed OHD system that features much greater detector sensitivity. Today’s most detailed treatment of the present and future of FOCS, Fiber Optic Communications helps you to develop systems that will be able to fulfill ultra-high-speed communication requirements well into the 21st century.

From the Back Cover:

When your job is ultra-high-speed communication systems, you can't afford to be a step behind the times. the first comprehensive applied book in years on this rapidly-changing area of telecommunications, here is the only resource capable of bringing you fully up to speed on the latest developments in fiber optic communication systems (FOCS). Designed to help you master the mathematics and statistics needed to create high-performance FOCs, Fiber Optic Communications offers you current, in-depth coverage of: Optical amplification and the operational characteristics of optical amplifiers. Several types of optical detectors - including a uniquely rigorous treatment of quantum noise, receiver noise, and noise in optical amplifiers. Wave-division multiplexing - which greatly increases the data rate capability of optical fibers. Optical heterodyne detection (OHD) systems - including system performance and proven methods for dealing with phase noise. Pros and cons of OHD receivers versus direct detection receivers - one of the hottest debates in fiber optics. Design and performance of a proposed OHD system that features much greater detector sensitivity than present systems. Today's most detailed reference on the present and future of FOCS, Fiber Optic Communications helps you to develop systems that will be able to fulfill ultra-high-speed communication requirements well into the 21st century.

About the Author:

Gerard Lachs, Ph.D., is Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of South Florida in Tampa.
