Fiber Optic Communications is an excellent text that provides a comprehensive discussion of fiber optic components, link analysis, and link design. The book presents background information in communications theory (primarily encoding and data timing) and the fundamentals of optics. Components are covered with particular emphasis on their impact on link performance.
The analysis and design aspects of the book focus on point-to-point links. Extensive use of exercises and examples help illustrate concepts for analyzing component and link performance. In addition, many fiber optic link design problems have been included. Appendices add additional depth to coverage to such topics as Maxwell's equations.
