Electrical Engineering Introduction to DWDM Technology Data in a Rainbow Telecommunication companies and research labs worldwide are racing to develop dense wave–length division multiplexing (DWDM) technology, a far–reaching advance in fiber optic communications. Introduction to DWDM Technology contains a wealth of full–color illustrations throughout to provide a clear, concise overview of the technology that can transport and process vast amounts of information at the speed of light. All the essentials from this emerging field are covered:

∗ Principles of physics underlying optical devices

∗ Optical components needed to design optical and DWDM systems

∗ Coding and decoding techniques used in optical communications

∗ Overview of DWDM communication systems

∗ State–of–the–art research trends

Complete with illustrations to show how devices work, this comprehensive book is written for practicing electrical engineers, optical systems designers, technical managers, and undergraduate students in optical communications.
