From the Back Cover:

The definitive guide to fiber-optic communicationsystems, nowfully up-to-date

since the release of the previous edition of this provenbestseller, fiber-optic communication systems (FOCS) haverevolutionized the telecommunications industry and, due toadvantages over electrical transmission, have largely replacedcopper wire communications. Now, the Fourth Edition continues thistrusted resource's tradition of providing the most comprehensiveFOCS coverage by incorporating the recent advances in the field,emphasizing both the physical understanding and engineeringaspects.

Featured are two new chapters: one deals with the advancedmodulation formats (such as DPSK, QPSK, and QAM) that areincreasingly being used for improving spectral efficiency of WDMlightwave systems; the other focuses on new techniques such asall-optical regeneration that are under development and likely tobe used in future communication systems. All other chapters havebeen updated, and material has been restructured to be bettersuited for a two-semester course on optical communications.

Students and researchers alike will benefit from the extensivepedagogical aids, including:

  • Extensive reference lists for each chapter

  • A survey of recent research material for each topic

  • Relevant end-of-chapter practice problems for instructors andstudents

  • A Solutions Manual available to instructors on request

  • State-of-the-art software on the enclosed CD, which students canuse to design point-to-point optical links, as well as additionalproblems for each chapter
