The fifth edition ofFiber Optic Communicationsby Joseph C. Palais marks the book's twentieth anniversary. In the 20 years since the first edition of the book was published, fiber optics systems have become more flexible and less costly and information capacity and transmission length have increased. This edition includes the many new and improved components and system architectures that have been added to the fiber-optic-communications designer's tool kit. New component discussions describe Improved fibers that more fully utilize the optical spectrum Non-zero dispersion shifted fibers Graded-index polymer fibers Raman amplifiers Erbium-doped waveguide amplifiers Arrayed waveguide gratings Electroabsorption modulators Optical micro-electro-mechanical (MEMs) components Dispersion compensators Tunable light sources Tunable filters Small-form-factor connectors Non-adhesive splices Expanded coverage of system strategies and considerations include Optical time-division multiplexing Dense and coarse wavelength-division multiplexing Polarization mode dispersion External modulation The fifth edition also includes new problems, new figures, new worked examples, and an updated bibliography.Joseph C. Palais is the author of 'Fiber Optic Communications (5th Edition)', published 2004 under ISBN 9780130085108 and ISBN 0130085103.
