Description - Fiber Optic Communications by Shiva Kumar

Fiber-optic 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 telephone calls.
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
Key Features:

Lucid explanation of key topics such as fibers, lasers, and

Includes recent developments such as coherent communication and
digital signal processing.

Comprehensive treatment of fiber nonlinear transmission.

Worked examples, exercises, and answers.

Accompanying website with PowerPoint slides and numerical
experiments in MATLAB.

Intended primarily for senior undergraduates and graduates
studying fiber-optic communications, the book is also suitable as a
professional resource for researchers working in the field of
fiber-optic communications.
