communication systems have advanced dramatically over the last four
decades, since the era of copper cables, resulting in low-cost and
high-bandwidth transmission. Fiber optics is now the backbone of the
internet and long-distance telecommunication. Without it we would not
enjoy the benefits of high-speed internet, or low-rate international
|This book introduces the
basic concepts of fiber-optic communication in a pedagogical way. The
important mathematical results are derived by first principles rather
than citing research articles.
In addition, physical interpretations and real-world analogies are
provided to help students grasp the fundamental concepts.
