The field of nonlinear fiber optics has grown substantially since the First Edition of Nonlinear Fiber Optics, published in 1989. Like the First Edition, this Second Edition is a comprehensive, tutorial, and up-to-date account of nonlinear optical phenomena in fiber optics. It synthesizes widely scattered research material and presents it in an accessible manner for students and researchers already engaged in or wishing to enter the field of nonlinear fiber optics. Particular attention is paid to the importance of nonlinear effects in the design of optical fiber communication systems. This is a completely new book containing either new sections or major revisions in every chapter.
Major changes in Soliton-based Communication Systems
New section on Photonic Switching
New section on the Nonlinear Fiber-loop Mirror
Section on Second-harmonic Generation will be expanded to include new research material
Two new chapters have been added on Fiber Amplifiers and Fiber Lasers, two major research areas which have grown significantly during the last 4-5 years
All references have been completely updated

The one and only "classic" work in the field of nonlinear fiber optics!From the Back Cover:
Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1989, the field of nonlinear fiber optics has virtually exploded. The third edition is intended to bring the book up to date so that it remains a unique source of comprehensive coverage on the subject of nonlinear fiber optics. An attempt was made to include recent research results on all topics relevant to the field of nonlinear fiber optics.
Nonlinear Fiber Optics, 3rd Edition, provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the nonlinear phenomena occurring inside optical fibers. It retains most of the material that appeared in the first edition, with the exception of Chapter 6, which is now devoted to the polarization effects relevant for light propagation in optical fibers. The contents include such important topics as self- and cross-phase modulation, stimulated Raman and Brillouin scattering, four-wave mixing, modulation instability, and optical solutons. A proper understanding of these topics is essential for scientists and engineers interested in various aspects of lightwave technology.
Such an ambitious objective increased the size of the book to the extent that it was necessary to create a separate but complimentary book, Applications of Nonlinear Fiber Optics, which is devoted to applications in the domain of lightwave technology.
This revised edition of Nonlinear Fiber Optics should serve well the needs of the scientific community including graduate students in Optics, Physics, and Electrical Engineering, engineers in the optical communication industry, and scientists working in fiber optics and nonlinear optics.
