Fiber Bragg Gratings, 2nd Edition
Optical fibers have revolutionized telecommunication, becoming the most widely
used and the most efficient device for relaying information over long distances.
While the market for optical fiber continues to grow, the next stage in the
field of communication is the mass delivery of integrated services, such as
home banking, shopping, internet services, and entertainment using video on
demand. The economies and performance potential will determine the type of technology
likely to succeed in the provision of these services. But it is already clear
that optical fibers will play a crucial role in communication systems of the
future. The opportunities provided by fiber Bragg gratings are of enormous importance
for the further development of the fiber optic communication lines as cost-effective
and efficient devices of the future.
Fiber Bragg Gratings is the result of a growing demand for focused and reliable
information on the subject. It brings together the fundamentals of fiber gratings,
their specific characterizations, and numerous applications. In addition to
researchers, scientists, and graduate students, it will be of interest to industrial
practitioners in the field of fabrication of fiber optic materials and devices.
It begins with the principles of fiber Bragg grating, from photosensitization
of optical fibers, Bragg grating fabrication, theory, properties of grating,
specific application, and concludes with measurement techniques.
