Optical Fiber Telecommunications VIB: Chapter 21. Advances in 1–100GHz Microwave Photonics: All-Band Optical Wireless Access Networks Using Radio Over Fiber Technologies (Optics and Photonics)
Radio-over-fiber (RoF) link technology has been developed to support multiple wireless signals over optical fiber applications such as mobile backhaul networks and WLANs. Given that conventional wireless networks use packet-switch links between the central office and remote base stations, the cost and complexity of the high-speed wireless networks for data and video transmission increase exponentially while the area of effective coverage decreases. These wireless systems become more inefficient as the data rates and the carrier frequencies required for delivering multi-gigabit wireless services climb higher. However, radio-over-fiber link systems utilizing lightwave to carry multiple analog RF signals through optical fibers can greatly extend the cellular sizes while transparent to the bit rates, modulation formats, and protocols. As a result, the complexity of wireless system to deliver multi-band, multi-gigabit wireless services can be simplified by taking advantages of microwave photonics in optical wireless network design and system integration. The end-to-end RoF systems, from the generation schemes of 1–100 GHz optical wireless signals in the central office to the design of transceivers for base stations and radio access units, are reviewed and investigated in this chapter. Various radio-over-fiber link technologies and the optical wireless interface specifications required to build a converged multi-service, gigabit wireless access network are introduced. The system impairment and its mitigation of radio-over-fiber link transmission will be investigated and analyzed.

Optical Fiber Communications Systems: Theory and Practice with MATLAB® and Simulink® Models (Optics and Photonics)
Carefully structured to provide practical knowledge on fundamental issues, Optical Fiber Communications Systems: Theory and Practice with MATLAB® and Simulink® Models explores advanced modulation and transmission techniques of lightwave communication systems. With coverage ranging from fundamental to modern aspects, the text presents optical communication techniques and applications, employing single mode optical fibers as the transmission medium. With MATLAB and Simulink models that illustrate methods, it supplies a deeper understanding of future development of optical systems and networks.The book begins with an overview of the development of optical fiber communications technology over the last three decades of the 20th century. It describes the optical transmitters for direct and external modulation technique and discusses the detection of optical signals under direct coherent and incoherent reception. The author also covers lumped Er:doped and distributed Roman optical amplifiers with extensive models for the amplification of signals and structuring the amplifiers on the Simulink platform. He outlines a design strategy for optically amplified transmission systems coupled with MATLAB Simulink models, including dispersion and attenuation budget methodology and simulation techniques. The book concludes with coverage of advanced modulation formats for long haul optical fiber transmission systems with accompanied Simulink models.Although many books have been written on this topic over the last two decades, most of them present only the theory and practice of devices and subsystems of the optical fiber communications systems in the fields, but do not illustrate any computer models to represent the true practical aspects of engineering practice. This book fills the need for a text that emphasizes practical computing models that shed light on the behavior and dynamics of the devices.

Optical Fiber Telecommunications VIB: Chapter 6. Advanced Coding for Optical Communications (Optics and Photonics)
This chapter represents an overview of advanced coding techniques for optical communication. Topics include: codes on graphs, coded modulation, rate-adaptive coded modulation, and turbo equalization. The main objectives of this chapter are: (i) to describe different classes of codes on graphs of interest for optical communications, (ii) to describe how to combine multilevel modulation and channel coding, (iii) to describe how to perform equalization and soft-decoding jointly, and (iv) to demonstrate efficiency of joint de-modulation, decoding, and equalization in dealing with various channel impairments simultaneously. Codes on graphs of interest for next-generation FEC for high-speed optical transport include turbo codes, turbo-product codes and low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes. We describe both binary and nonbinary LDPC codes, their design and decoding algorithms. We also discuss an FPGA implementation of decoders for binary LDPC codes. We demonstrate that an LDPC-coded turbo equalizer is an excellent candidate to simultaneously mitigate uncompensated chromatic dispersion, PMD, fiber nonlinearities and I/Q-imbalance. For completeness of presentation, we also provide the information capacity study of optical channels with memory.

Optical Fiber Telecommunications VIA: Chapter 6. Nanophotonics for Low-Power Switches (Optics and Photonics)
This chapter treats several approaches for employing nanophotonics or near-nanophotonics concepts to create low-power switches. The partly interrelated issues of low-power dissipation and small device footprint are elucidated and figures of merit for switches formulated. Both optically and electronically controlled optical switches are treated and the crucial role of material development emphasized, illustrated by several examples, including both theoretical analysis of switch concepts and experimentally realized switches. Thus, electronically controlled switches based on hybrid, metamaterial, and nanoparticle plasmonics, electrooptic polymers as well as switches based on silicon and photonic crystals are discussed. The all-optical switches focus on third-order nonlinear effects and carrier-induced refractive index changes in III–V materials, as well as on emerging concepts of near-field-coupled quantum-dot switches. A brief comparison to electronic switches is done.

Optical Fiber Telecommunications VIB: Chapter 5. Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and Its Application in Optical Communication Systems (Optics and Photonics)
The key question of current optical communications research is: how to maximize both capacity and transmission distance in future optical transmission networks by using spectrally-efficient modulation formats with coherent detection, and how can digital signal processing aid in this quest? There is a clear trade-off between spectral efficiency and transmission distance, since the more spectrally-efficient modulation formats are also more susceptible to optical fiber nonlinearities. This chapter illustrates the application of nonlinear backpropagation to mitigate for both linear and nonlinear transmission impairments for a range of modulation formats, at varying symbol-rates and wavelength spacings, and also by varying the signal bandwidth which is backpropagated. The basics of coherent receiver structure and DSP algorithms for chromatic dispersion compensation, equalization and phase recovery of PDM-BPSK, PS-QPSK, PDM-QPSK, PDM-8PSK, PDM-8QAM, and PDM-16QAM are reviewed and the effectiveness of the nonlinearity compensating DSP based on digital backpropagation is explored. This chapter includes a comprehensive literature review of the key experimental demonstrations of nonlinearity-compensating DSP.
