Fibre Optic Communication, Hardback Book

Fibre Optic Communication Hardback

Edited by Norbert Grote, Herbert Venghaus

Part of the Springer Series in Optical Sciences series


This book gives an in-depth description of the key devices of current and next generation fibre optic communication networks.

In particular, this book covers devices such as semiconductor lasers, optical amplifiers, modulators, wavelength filters, and detectors but the relevant properties of optical fibres as well.

The presentations include the physical principles underlying the various devices, the technologies used for the realization of the different devices, typical performance characteristics and limitations, and development trends towards more advanced components are also illustrated.

Thus the scope of the book spans relevant principles, state-of-the-art implementations, the status of current research and expected future components.
