This textbook presents the theory underlying these essential technologies - optical fiber communications, integrated optics, and optical sensors. Taking a step-by-step format, Marcuse teaches the theory of light transmission in optical fibers and in dielectic optical waveguides. The text includes methods for calculating modes and their interactions. This second edition contains new material on coupled mode theory, coupled power theory, approximate and numerical methods, nonlinear effects, and soliton propagation.
