This book describes in a comprehensive manner the components and systems of fiber-optic communications and networks. Coverage is divided into three parts: Part 1 explains the propagation theory over single-mode and multimode fibers, as well as technological features (manufacturing, cabling, connecting). Part 2 describes the various components (passive and active optical components, integrated optics, optoelectronic transmitters and receivers, and optical amplifiers) used in fiber-optic systems. Finally, Part 3 explains the design of optical transmission systems and their application to optical networks and fiber-optic sensors, including the most recent developments in switched networks, very high bitrate systems, fiber to the home (FTTH) or radio over fiber.
Exercises with solutions are given to enable readers to test their understanding, making this a valuable resource for students, engineers and researchers involved in this field.
