The Optical Communications ReferenceEdited by
- Casimer DeCusatis, Distinguished Engineer, IBM Corporation
- Ivan Kaminow, Formerly AT&T Bell Laboratories, Inc., now at University of California, Berkeley, USA
Extracting key information from Academic Presss range of prestigious titles in optical communications, this reference gives the R&D optical fiber communications engineer a quick and easy-to-grasp understanding of the current state of the art in optical communications technology, together with some of the underlying theory, covering a broad of topics: optical waveguides, optical fibers, optical transmitters and receivers, fiber optic data communication, optical networks, and optical theory. With this reference, the engineer will be up-to-speed on the latest developments in no-time.
