Optical Fiber Telecommunications VIB: Chapter 6. Advanced Coding for Optical Communications (Optics and Photonics)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Optical-Fiber-Telecommunications-VI...
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 Fibers

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Optical-Fibers-Takanori-Okoshi-eboo...
Optical Fibers describes the theoretical basis—electromagnetic theories—of transmission characteristics of optical fibers. The material and fabrication technologies are not described systematically, but only briefly where necessary to assist comprehension of the transmission characteristics. This book comprises 11 chapters, with an introductory chapter that discusses such topics as optical communications before the advent of optical fibers, a technical background of the subject matter, and a summary of its history. Succeeding chapters then discuss basic concepts and equations; ray theory of optical fibers; wave theory of uniform-core fibers; wave theory of nonuniform-core fibers; and classification and comparison of various analysis methods. Other chapters cover optimum refractive-index profile of optical fibers; optical fibers having structural fluctuations; measurement of refractive-index profile of optical fibers; measurement of transmission characteristics of optical fibers; and finally, some concluding remarks. This book will be of interest to practitioners in the fields of electronic engineering and electrical communications.

Optical Fiber Telecommunications VIA: Chapter 14. VCSEL-Based Data Links (Optics and Photonics)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Optical-Fiber-Telecommunications-VI...
Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL)-based data links are attractive due to their low-power dissipation and low-cost manufacturability. This chapter reviews the foundations for this technology, as well as the device and module design challenges of extending the data rate beyond the current level. We begin with a review of data communications from the business perspective, and continue with a brief discussion of the current and future standards. This is followed by a survey of recent advances in VCSELs, including data links operating at 28Gb/s. We review the recent efforts on ultra-fast data links and discuss the advantages of the different approaches. We also examine key design aspects of optical transceiver modules and we focus our discussion on novel applications in high-performance computing using both multi-mode and single-mode fiber optics. We highlight the importance of the device/component-level and system-level modeling and show some modeling examples with comparison to measured data. We conclude with a comparison of the VCSEL-based data links with other competing technologies, including silicon photonics and short-cavity edge emitting lasers.

Optical Fiber Telecommunications VIB: Chapter 22. PONs: State of the Art and Standardized (Optics and Photonics)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Optical-Fiber-Telecommunications-VI...
This chapter aims to describe the current state of the PON technology, including both “state-of-the-art” systems that are currently under research in the laboratory and “standardized” systems that have been or soon will be described as an industry norm. A short introduction to the PON topic will be given, to set the scene and provide the basic motivation for why PON is so important to fiber access. Then, each of the major technologies will be reviewed, including TDM, Video overlay, WDM, FDM, and Hybrid multiplexing. The focus of each review will be at a system level and will not dive into the details (those will be handled via references to published works). Rather, the intention is to present the wide view of the whole range, so as to compare and contrast them.
