This book provides the reader with a clear overview of the considerable body of research and development work carried out in the last five years on microstructured polymer optical fibres (mPOFs) and the huge potential that they offer in a diversity of application areas. It contains sections explaining the guiding mechanism in these fibres, the fabrication methods, the variety of fibres that can be made, the optical properties that can be achieved and an outline of potential applications. It also explains the state-of-play with respect to current research and issues that have still to be resolved. It includes for the first time details about the fabrication process for these fibres. This description is extended to apply to other classes of microstructured fibres including those made from silica.
The book provides an excellent introduction to this new technology, making it accessible to industry, technical and research audiences.
Prism and Lens Making: A Textbook for Optical Glassworkers, Second Edition is a unique compendium of the art and science of the optical working of glass for the production of mirrors, lenses, and prisms. Incorporating minor corrections and a foreword by Professor Walter Welford FRS, this reissue of the 1957 edition provides a wealth of technical information and hands-on guidance gained from a lifetime of experience. Although some of the techniques have been replaced by more modern methods, this classic book is still a valuable source of practical assistance as well as being a pleasure to read.
Optical Networking Standards: A Comprehensive Guide for Professionals provides a single source reference of over a hundred standards and industry technical specifications for optical networks at all levels: from components to networking systems through global networks, as well as coverage of networks management and services. This book focuses on the recently approved, adopted and implemented standards that have fueled the development of versatile switches, routers and multi-service provisioning platforms. These networking elements have enabled the service-providers world-wide to offer flexible yet customized bundled-services based on IP, MPLS and Carrier-Grade Ethernet.
Lead implementers, contributors and editors of the new standards have come together to produce this uniform and complete reference. The list includes independent consultants, professionals, and researchers from such companies as AMCC, Agere Systems, British Telecom, Ciena Corporation, Cisco Systems, Lucent Technologies, Marconi, Nortel, PMC-Sierra, Strix Systems and Tellabs.
Highlights include recent advancements involving:
- Critical technical standards and implementation from ITU-T, IETF, MEF, and OIF
- Optimization of SONET/SDH and OTN infrastructure for data delivery, GFP, VCAT and LCAS
- IP, MPLS, Ethernet and Fibre Channel services over public networks
- Optical control plane for dynamically switched optical networks, ASON
- Network survivability and recovery
- Timing in global optical networks
- Architecture of optical transport networks
- Network element design using standardized components and inter-components communication
- Numerous illustrative examples showing actual situations or cases implemented
The volume has been edited by Dr. Khurram Kazi, a networking veteran with over 19 years of real-world expertise in architecting and designing ASICs and systems for SONET, IP, ATM, PDH and Ethernet networks. Dr. Kazi has published refereed articles and conference tutorials on topics ranging from optical components to ASICs and Optical Networks.
