Fundamentals of Optical Fiber Communication, Second Edition is a seven-chapter tutorial text that considers fiber optic technology as applied to communications systems. This book is based on lectures presented at an annual short course entitled "Fiber Optic Communication Systems" at the University of California at Santa Barbara.

The first chapter provides an overview of the ideal optical fiber waveguide, its information carrying capacity, degree of imperfection, and propagation of perturbed waveguide leading to intermodal coupling of power. The next chapters describe the basic optical fiber cable configuration, the coupling components for optical fiber waveguides, and the electroluminescent sources for fiber systems. These topics are followed by discussions of the features and application of photodiodes, the development of a physical model for photodetection, circuit models for various detector types, and a statistical or noise model for optical receiver performance prediction. The concluding chapters describe the theory and practice of receiver and transmitter design, as well as the design considerations for multiterminal networks.

This book will be of value to communications engineers, designers, and researchers.
