Welcome to this course on EEE 461: Optical fiber communication. It is almost unnecessary to mention the importance of optical fiber in modern communication sector.Fiber optic communication has revolutionised the telecommunications industry.Fiber optical communication enables telecommunications networks to provide high bandwidth high speed data connections across countries and the globe. This type of communication can transmit voice,video and telemetry through local area networks,computer networks across long distance. Optical fiber also offers low power loss, lost cost, lower attenuation, greater security.
Historical development of optical fiber, working principle of optical fiber communication system, advantages, disadvantages and applications, Ray transmission theory, light propagation through Optical fiber, comparison of different types of fiber, different types of fiber loss, attenuation, dispersion, effect of dispersion, different types of nonlinear effects of fiber, principle of optical sources and detectors.
