Summary: Summary: Annotation. An introduction requiring no background in fiber optics or optic communications and only the simplest concepts from algebra and trigonometry; results are explained in physical terms wherever possible, though numerical values are given for the range of typical device parameters. Successful readers should be able to design and specify systems and to choose and evaluate system components such as fibers, light sources, detectors, and couplers as well as commercially available sub-systems such as complete transmitters and receivers. First published in 1984 and revised here from the 1992 edition to keep up with changes in the technology and the industry.
