Description

Optical Fiber Telecommunications II provides a comprehensive discussion of the new understanding and attractive new fiber optic technology that has appeared in the past decade. It is an invaluable resource for the lightwave telecommunications field and will be of interest to operating company engineers, component design, and manufacturing engineers, researchers interested in the interrelation between their specialty and others in the system, and students seeking background for additional contributions they will be making.

Review quote

"Each chapter carries its own list of 50 to 150 references to original papers, acting as a valuable source for further reading and study. The book is then completed by a well-constructed and detailed Index. All in all, I felt this was a superb volume; one that will undoubtedly become one of the obligatory source books for the field over the next 5 to 10 years or so, until Volume III is needed! I can strongly recommend it to readers as a book that they should definitely have in their company or college library, and one that they would be happy to have on their personal library shelf if they can afford it. I was delighted to have had the opportunity to receive a review copy!"
--JOURNAL OF OPTICAL AND QUANTUM ELECTRONICS
"Provides comprehensive access to lightwave science and technology at the leading edge available in no other single place--clearly the best in the field."
--A.A. Penzias, Nobel Laureate Physics, Vice President of Research, AT&T BELL LABORATORIES
"In this book, Stewart Miller and Ivan Kaminow--two pioneers of the field--are joined by experts in every important aspect of the subject. The result is authoritative and up-to-date coverage of the fundamentals and practice of fiber-optic components and systems. Both students and practitioners of optical communications can be thankful to the editors and authors for this fine treatment."
--J.R. Whinnery, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, BERKELEY

About Stewart E. Miller

Ivan Kaminow retired from Bell Labs in 1996 after a 42-year career. He conducted seminal studies on electrooptic modulators and materials, Raman scattering in ferroelectrics, integrated optics, semiconductor lasers (DBR, ridge-waveguide InGaAsP and multi-frequency), birefringent optical fibers, and WDM networks. Later, he led research on WDM components (EDFAs, AWGs and fiber Fabry-Perot Filters), and on WDM local and wide area networks. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a recipient of the IEEE Edison Medal, OSA Ives Medal, and IEEE Photonics Award. Since 2004, he has been Adjunct Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. Ivan Kaminow retired from Bell Labs in 1996 after a 42-year career.
