Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing for Optical Communications
The first book to address optical OFDM provides a coherent and comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of both optical communications and OFDM signal processing, with a distinctive focus on its broad range of applications. The authors evaluate the architecture, design and performance of a number of OFDM variations and discuss coded OFDM, with detailed study of error correction codes for access networks, 100 Gb/s Ethernet and future optical networks.
The emerging applications of optical OFDM, including single-mode fiber transmission, multimode fiber transmission, free space optical systems, and optical access networks are examined, with particular attention paid to passive optical networks, radio-over-fiber, WiMAX and UWB communications.
Written by the two creators of the field, this book will be a unique, hard-working reference for optical communications engineers and scientists. It will also be of great interest to students, technical managers and telecom executives seeking to understand this new technology for future-generation optical networks.
