Optical Fibre Communications: Topics in Lightwave Transmission
The second of a two-volume treatise on the science, engineering, and application of information transmission through optical fibers. Covers transmitters and receivers basic to presently operating systems, the frequency and phase modulation of the optical carrier, systems considerations and experiments, and nonlinear effects. Volume one (1985) deals exclusively with fiber fabrication. Copyrighted by AT&T, for which the editor and several authors work. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
