This collection consists of interviews conducted by author and historian Jeff Hecht for his book City of Light: The Story of Fiber Optics. The collection includes audio cassette tapes as well as transcripts and notes of interviews conducted by Jeff Hecht, as well as correspondence files and emails with interviewees ranging from physicists to electronics engineers. Interview subjects include: Elias Snitzer, George Hockham, Charles Sandbank, Bob Tkach and Andy Chraplyvy, Linn Mollenauer and Ivan Kaminow, Peter Runge, John Midwinter, Paul Lazay, John Wilbur Hicks Jr., Donald Keck (printed transcript), Peter Schultz, Murray Ramsay with Martin Chown and Richard Epworth, J. Jim Hseih, Mort Panish, Kenneth Nill, Felix Kapron, Ira Jacobs, Charles K. Kao (printed transcript), Robert Maurer, Lewis Hyde, Brian O'Brien, Jr., and Willem Brouwer. Also includes reminiscences from the New England Fiberoptic Council, and interviews with engineers and scientists at British Telecommunications Research Laboratories. Tapes and/or transcripts exist for 26 interviews; for others there may only be notes on the interview, and much of this is in electronic format.

Single Mode Optical Waveguide Design Study( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

With the extremely low losses attained in optical waveguides over the past three years, it is expected that graded index multimode systems with long repeater spacing will be dispersion limited. In that case the only recourse is to use single mode waveguides. To fully utilize this potential, the single mode waveguide design has to be simultaneously optimized with respect to total loss and bandwidth of the system. Since the bandwidth of a single mode waveguide is considered sufficiently high for most telecommunication applications, the present work has concentrated on total waveguide loss as would be experienced in a real system. The objective of this study is to experimentally determine the step index single mode fiber loss dependence, by all mechanisms likely to be experienced practically, upon the key fiber design parameters, core diameter (2a) and fractional index difference (delta). Only with this systematic and comprehensive data base, will a rational choice of and/or criteria for choosing fiber design parameters optimized for a given application be obtained
