Optical Fiber Telecommunications Volume VIA, Sixth Edition: by Ivan Kaminow, Tingye Li, Alan E Willner

By Ivan Kaminow, Tingye Li, Alan E Willner

Optical Fiber Telecommunications VI (A&B) is the 6th in a sequence that has chronicled the development within the R&D of lightwave communications because the early Seventies. Written via energetic gurus from academia and undefined, this version brings a clean glance to many crucial themes, together with units, subsystems, platforms and networks. A vital subject is the allowing of high-bandwidth communications in a cheap demeanour for the improvement of purchaser purposes. those volumes are an incredible reference for R&D engineers and executives, optical structures implementers, college researchers and scholars, community operators, and investors.

Volume A is dedicated to elements and subsystems, together with photonic built-in circuits, multicore and few-mode fibers, photonic crystals, silicon photonics, sign processing, and optical interconnections.

  • All the most recent applied sciences and strategies for constructing destiny elements and systems
  • Edited via winners of the hugely prestigious OSA/IEEE John Tyndal award and a President of IEEE's Lasers & Electro-Optics Society (7,000 members)
  • Written by way of top specialists within the box, it's the such a lot authoritative and accomplished reference on optical engineering the market

Sample text

However, coherent detection systems, such as, for example, coherent-optical orthogonal-frequency-division-multiplexed (CO-OFDM) systems, and advanced modulation formats, such as quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), impose much more stringent requirements on source linewidth, stability, and phase/frequency noise characteristics. The development of inexpensive laser sources, with high coherence and stability, is expected to replace expensive external-cavity semiconductor lasers and allow their use as local oscillators similar to the way local oscillators are used in today’s radio communication systems.

A brief comparison with other technologies in the telecom and non-telecom applications space is also given. The chapter concludes with a summary and an outlook of the fiber laser technologies and the future prospects. 1 Introduction DFB lasers were first proposed and demonstrated by Kogelnik and Shank [5,6]. In DFB laser cavities; feedback is provided by distributed Bragg structures, instead of classic discrete mirrors, resulting in compact and frequency-stable devices. The first demonstration involved a UV-exposed periodic structure on a gelatin film soaked in a dye (rhodamine 6G).

These lasers can be fabricated in high volumes as components of complex photonic integrated circuits, largely with CMOS-compatible processes. These traits are expected to allow for highly complex, non-traditional photonic integrated circuits with very high yields and relatively low manufacturing costs. This chapter discusses the theory of hybrid silicon lasers, wafer-bonding techniques, examples of experimental results, examples of system demonstrations based on hybrid silicon lasers, and prospects for future devices.
