Optical Fiber Communications Principles and Practice by John Senior

Optical Fiber Communications Principles and Practice


Optical Fiber Communications Principles and Practice by John Senior

Senior is an established core text in a field that is growing fast, and in which technology is constantly evolving. The text succeeds in giving a practical introduction to the fundamentals, problems and techniques of design and utilisation of optical fiber systems. It is respected as the most comprehensive and practical book in the market. This new edition will retain all core features, while incorporating recent improvements and developments in the field. Optical fiber systems have now become more sophisticated and, as a result, are now the communication method of choice for many systems. New/additional material will include optical amplifiers, soliton systems and optical networks.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
