Designed for a senior or graduate-level course in optical communications, Principles and Applications of Optical Communications offers comprehensive coverage of a variety of light wave technologies not often found in other texts. Taking an applied approach to the subject, this text has utility in a number of different optical communications courses and in advanced signal processing. The coverage and approach reflect Dr. Liu's background in industry. They offer students exposure to the latest technologies and give strong preparation for industry positions in optical communications. Salient Features Offers broad, balanced, and detailed coverage of various lightwave technologies Introduction of a wide variety of technologies, including: decision feedback lasers, tunable lasers, external modulation, advanced OEICs, noise analysis, transmission link design, wavelength division multiplexing, SONET, high-speed multiple access, photonic switching, optic networks, subcarrier multiplexing for CATV applications, coherent detection, carrier and bit timing recoveries, optical amplifications, and optical fiber soliton transmission.
