Optical Fiber Telecommunications V (A&B) is the 5th in a sequence that has chronicled the growth within the examine and improvement of lightwave communications because the early Seventies. Written through lively specialists from academia and undefined, this version not just brings a clean glance to many crucial issues but additionally makes a speciality of community administration and providers. utilizing excessive bandwidth in an economical demeanour for the improvement of purchaser functions is a principal subject. This publication is perfect for R&D engineers and bosses, optical platforms implementers, college researchers and scholars, community operators, and the funding community.
Volume (A) is dedicated to parts and subsystems, together with: semiconductor lasers, modulators, photodetectors, built-in photonic circuits, photonic crystals, distinctiveness fibers, polarization-mode dispersion, digital sign processing, MEMS, nonlinear optical sign processing, and quantum info applied sciences. quantity (B) is dedicated to platforms and networks, together with: complex modulation codecs, coherent structures, time-multiplexed platforms, functionality tracking, reconfigurable add-drop multiplexers, Ethernet applied sciences, broadband entry and providers, metro networks, long-haul transmission, optical switching, microwave photonics, computing device interconnections, and simulation tools.
Ivan Kaminow retired from Bell Labs in 1996 after a 42-year occupation. He performed seminal experiences on electrooptic modulators and fabrics, Raman scattering in ferroelectrics, built-in optics, semiconductor lasers (DBR , ridge-waveguide InGaAsP and multi-frequency), birefringent optical fibers, and WDM networks. Later, he led learn on WDM parts (EDFAs, AWGs and fiber Fabry-Perot Filters), and on WDM neighborhood and large region networks. he's a member of the nationwide Academy of Engineering and a recipient of the IEEE/OSA John Tyndall, OSA Charles Townes and IEEE/LEOS Quantum Electronics Awards. considering that 2004, he has been Adjunct Professor of electric Engineering on the college of California, Berkeley.
Tingye Li retired from AT&T in 1998 after a 41-year profession at Bell Labs and AT&T Labs. His seminal paintings on laser resonator modes is taken into account a vintage. because the past due Nineteen Sixties, He and his teams have performed pioneering experiences on lightwave applied sciences and structures. He led the paintings on amplified WDM transmission structures and championed their deployment for upgrading community means. he's a member of the nationwide Academy of Engineering and a international member of the chinese language Academy of Engineering. he's a recipient of the IEEE David Sarnoff Award, IEEE/OSA John Tyndall Award, OSA Ives Medal/Quinn Endowment, AT&T technology and know-how Medal, and IEEE Photonics Award.
Alan Willner has labored at AT&T Bell Labs and Bellcore, and he's Professor of electric Engineering on the college of Southern California. He obtained the NSF Presidential school Fellows Award from the White condo, Packard starting place Fellowship, NSF nationwide younger Investigator Award, Fulbright origin Senior student, IEEE LEOS distinctive Lecturer, and USC University-Wide Award for Excellence in instructing. he's a Fellow of IEEE and OSA, and he has been President of the IEEE LEOS, Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE/OSA J. of Lightwave know-how, Editor-in-Chief of Optics Letters, Co-Chair of the OSA technological know-how & Engineering Council, and common Co-Chair of the convention on Lasers and Electro-Optics.
For approximately 3 a long time, the OFT sequence has served because the accomplished fundamental source protecting growth within the technological know-how and expertise of optical fiber telecom. it's been crucial for the bookshelves of scientists and engineers lively within the box. OFT V offers updates on massive development in verified disciplines, in addition to introductions to new issues. [OFT V]... generates a price that's even better than that of the sum of its chapters.
