Optical Communications

The vivid deterioration of transmission loss in optical fibers coupled with equally important developments in the zone of detectors and light resources has brought about a phenomenal progress of the fiber optic industry during the previous two decades. The foundation of optical fiber communication overlapped with the fabrication of low-loss optical fibers and working of semiconductor lasers at room-temperature of in 1970. From that point onward, the scientific and technological progress in this arena has been so extraordinary that we are already in the fifth generation of optical fiber communication systems inside a fleeting range of 30 years.

New developments in optical amplifiers and wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) are appealing us to a communication system with approximately “zero” loss and “infinite” bandwidth. Indeed, optical fiber communication systems are gratifying the puffed-up demand on communication links, especially with the spread of the Internet. Optical Waveguides and Fibers, is an outline to the basics of fiber optics, discussing solely the characteristics of optical fibers as regards to their use in telecommunication and fiber optic sensors.
