About the Book :

This book is intended to fulfill the requirements of a graduate-level textbook in the field of optical communications. An attempt is made to include as much recent material as possible so that students are exposed to the recent advances in this exciting field. The book can also serve as a reference text for researchers already engaged in or wishing to enter the field of optical fiber communications. The reference list at the end of each chapter is more elaborate than what is common for a typical textbook. The listing of recent research papers should be useful for researchers using this book as a reference. At the same time, students can benefit from it if they are assigned problems requiring reading of original research papers. A set of problems is included at the end of each chapter to help both teacher and student.

About the Author :

Govind P. Agrawal is a professor at the Institute of Optics at the University of Rochester and a Fellow of both the Optical Society of America and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. He is the author or coauthor of over 300 research papers, book chapters, and monographs.
