Silica Optical Fiber Technology for Devices and Components: Design, Fabrication, and International Standards

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Nov 7, 2012 - Technology & Engineering - 472 pages
1 Review
From basic physics to new products, Silica Optical Fiber Technology for Device and Components examines all aspects of specialty optical fibers. Moreover, the inclusion of the latest international standards governing optical fibers enables you to move from research to fabrication to commercialization.

• Reviews all the latest specialty optical fiber technologies, including those developed for high capacity WDM applications; broadband fiber amplifiers; fiber filleters based on periodic coupling; fiber branching devices; and fiber terminations

• Discusses key differences among single mode fibers, multimode fibers for high speed Ethernet LAN, and dispersion compensating fibers for long-haul applications

• Compares the most recently developed conventional optical fibers with the latest photonic crystal fibers still in development

A self-contained, menu-driven software program is included for optical fiber design, simulating waveguide structures for most of the fibers discussed in the book.

I am a professor with 20 years of experience making a wide variety of optical fibers. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book, which I use in class and frequently in my own research. It is thorough and well-written by two globally pre-eminant scholars. I highly recommend it for anyone working in optical fibers.
