This book describes in a comprehensive manner the components and systems of fiber optic communications and networks.The firstsection explains the theoryof multimode and single-mode fibers, then the technological features, including manufacturing, cabling, and connecting.The secondsection describes the various components (passive and active optical components, integrated optics, opto-electronic transmitters and receivers, and optical amplifiers) used in fiber optic systems. Finally, the optical transmission system design is explained, and applications to optical networks and fiber optic sensorsare detailed, including the most recent developments in switched networks, high bit-rate systems, and FTTH or radio over fiber.
