Solitons are waves that retain their form through obstacle and distance. Solitons can be found in hydrodynamics, nonlinear optics, plasma physics, and biology. Optical solitons are solitary light waves that hold their form over an expansive interval. Conservation of this form creates an effective model for long distance voice and data transmission.The application of this principle is essential to the technology of wired communications. Optical solitons produce crystal clear phone calls cross-country and internationally. It is because of these that someone on the other end of the phone sounds 'in the next room.' It is also pertinent to high-speed network information transmittal.Mollenauer and Gordon have written the only text that an engineer or graduate student will need to understand this foundation subject in optics.*Written by Linn Mollenauer and James Gordon who are celebrated for applying optical solitons to telecommnications*Combines mathematical developments with well-chosen practical examples and design formulas*Extensive material on the basic physics of fiber optic transmission and its practical applications

In many applications, radio frequency (RF) signals need to be transmitted and processed without being digitalized. Optical fiber provides a transmission medium in which RF modulated optical carriers can be transmitted and distributed with very low loss, making it more efficient and less costly than conventional electronic systems. This volume presents a review of RF photonic components, transmission systems, and signal processing examples in optical fibers from leading academic, government, and industry scientists working in this field. It also introduces the reader to various related technologies such as direct modulation of laser sources, external modulation techniques, and detectors. The text is aimed at engineers and scientists engaged in the research and development of optical fibers and analog RF applications. With an emphasis on design, performance and practical application, this book will be of particular interest to those developing systems based on this technology.

Optical fiber communication has indeed come a long way from the 1970s. From being a favorite subject of science fiction movies and books, today it is believable reality that finds applications in many spheres.This book explores the dominant role of optical fiber communication in the telecommunication industry, as it caters to the ever-increasing demand for high data rate transmission. It provides an overview of the history and origin of optic fiber communication and discusses the manufacturing techniques, characteristics and current applications of optic fibers. It also describes the types of fiber links in use today, the elements of optic fiber communication and the design considerations. It finally presents a brief outlook of the proposed new technologies to overcome the limitations of current optical fibers and enhance their data carrying capacity to meet the emerging demands worldwide.The book is targeted at students (as an introductory course material) and those who are not familiar with the subject and are eager to know more.

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.

This lab manual describes a series of experiments using side illuminated optical fibers. It was in 1989, 26 years ago, when AT&T Bell Labs’ scientists described, for the first time, a side illuminated optical fiber sensor. Their original device had a fluorescent cladding sensitive to oxygen and became the only known configuration for the next 16 years. These scientists recognized, very early, that this technique provided a much higher signal to noise ratio, SNR, if compared to the regular way optical fibers were used: by axial illumination. However, despite this recognition, these pioneers abandoned their own unique concept and left the least travelled road. At the end, the task of championing this neglected technique befell upon this author who started his work at the same time these researchers published their first paper. For this reason, I can also be counted among its early pioneers.Despite side illumination’s simplicity, low cost and high SNR, it did not get much attention in its first 12 years. However, it is now clear, although only in hindsight, that sensors based on side illumination could have been developed and commercially deployed in the early/mid 1990’s. For this reason, it is puzzling that very little attention was given to this technique: especially in view of the fact that, even today, axial illumination is plagued with low SNR, expensive instrumentation and low spatial resolution. So, while the scientific community kept on developing devices using axial illumination, photonics crystal fibers and Bragg gratings, side illumination languished, almost forgotten, between 1995 and 2003. Definitely, such state of affairs can only be explained in the context of Murphy’s Laws…Until 2001, side illumination was a technique that was exploited only in the US. However, little by little, interest grew in Europe, Brazil, India, Canada, South Korea, China, Australia and Hong Kong. The numbers are finally starting to paint a better picture: in the first 14 years, between 1989 and 2003, there were only 10 papers, patents, thesis and reports prepared about this technique. In the following 11 years, from 2004 to 2014, 47 new documents were added to this list: almost five times more. We now fear that there will be so much work done, that it will be difficult to track it.In addition, we are witnessing what seems to be a consistent commercialization effort of this type of device. Although in its commercial infancy, optical fiber colorimeters can make measurements from multiple cuvettes using a single detection system. If the detection system is a spectrometer, this multitude of measurements can also be made simultaneously at different wavelengths. Since only one detector is required, the larger the number of samples along the fiber, the more competitive its cost per sample. As an example, an optical fiber colorimeter that can accommodate three cuvettes is already being offered at a price that is comparable to regular colorimeters. And the future is finally looking brighter: at the beginning, side illuminated fibers used fluorescent coatings attached to expensive spectrometers and excited by massive light sources. Today’s devices are inexpensive and compact technology platforms that can also be used to make absorption, scattering and index of refraction measurements. In the addition to the optical fiber colorimeter, position and chemical sensors have also been added to this list. These devices are being used with 5 mm diameter LEDs and highly sensitive and inexpensive photodiodes that can be read by regular multi-meters. In this lab manual, we present a series of experiments that can be performed with this technology. Whether you are professional instructor or researcher, a high school, undergraduate or graduate student, you will appreciate many of the advantages and benefits of this technique that remained dormant for so many years.I hope you enjoy it!
