Chapter 8:
Fiber Optic Telecommunication
Editor(s): Chandra Roychoudhuri
Abstract
Fiber optics is a major building block in the telecommunication infrastructure. Its high bandwidth capabilities and low attenuation characteristics make it ideal for gigabit transmission and beyond. In this module, you will be introduced to the building blocks that make up a fiber optic communication system. You will learn about the different types of fiber and their applications, light sources and detectors, couplers, splitters, wavelength-division multiplexers, and state-of-the-art devices used in the latest high-bandwidth communication systems. Attention will also be given to system performance criteria such as power and rise-time budgets.
