Fibre Optic has become an inseparable part of telecommunications technology. Optical Fibre Transmission Theory, Technology and Design provides the reader with a comprehensive treatment of all the theory and design criteria needed to design high speed and multi-wavelengths fibre optic communication systems. Thus, it will be useful for many professionals involved in advanced optical fibre system design, giving coverage of the various aspects of this technology and the current developments. Through experiences in design, Bottacchhi compiles the answers to various problems related to system design in this book.
* Offers comprehensive coverage of the subject area, from physics to systems to networks * Contains many aspects of optical fibre transmission technology including waveguide theories, opto-electronic devices and system design * Provides the reader with a detailed description of the optical pulse propagation theory * Covers all the theory and design criteria of high speed and multi wavelength fibre optic communication systems Due to the balance between the clear descriptions of theory and coverage of relevant practical examples, this text is suitable not only for R&D engineers and system designers, but also academics and researchers in the field.
