This book (in two volumes) has been the "bible" for optical communications engineers for 32 years. Since the publication of Optical Fiber Telecommunications V (OFTV) in 2008, many new technologies have evolved that will form the basis of future optical engineering applications in the communications industry. Written by active authorities in the field both from industry and academia, OFT V1 A&B includes all the newest and most important emerging optical technologies. With this book, engineers will have all the key technologies at their fingertips for future optical components and systems development.
R&D engineers working on developing next generation optical components; fiber optic systems and network engineers; graduates and academic researchers.

"For nearly three decades, the OFT series has served as the comprehensive primary resource covering progress in the science and technology of optical fiber telecom. It has been essential for the bookshelves of scientists and engineers active in the field. OFT V provides updates on considerable progress in established disciplines, as well as introductions to new topics. [OFT V]... generates a value that is even higher than that of the sum of its chapters."
Herwig Kogelnik, Vice President Adjunct, Bell Labs, Alcatel-Lucent
"... is a comprehensive and authoritative coverage of the latest research advances and development trends in the field, while upholding the highest standards of scholarly exposition and practical perspective. The wealth of material on innovative technologies and advanced applications will serve as an important and timely information resource ... for the advancement of telecommunications world-wide."
