Handbook of fiber optics : theory and applications

Author: Chai Yeh
Publisher: San Diego : Academic Press, [1990] ©1990
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Dr. Yeh supplies a firm theoretical foundation in such topics as propagation of light through fibers, fiber fabrication, loss mechanisms, and dispersion properties. He then expands from this into such practical areas as fiber splicing, measuring loss in fibers, fiber-based communications networks, remote fiber sensors, and integrated optics. Whether involved in fiber optics research, design, or practical  Read more...
