Applications of Nonlinear Fiber Optics
The development of new highly nonlinear fibers - referred to as microstructured
fibers, holey fibers and photonic crystal fibers - is the next generation technology
for all-optical signal processing and biomedical applications. This new edition
has been thoroughly updated to incorporate these key technology developments.
The book presents sound coverage of the fundamentals of lightwave technology,
along with material on pulse compression techniques and rare-earth-doped fiber
amplifiers and lasers. The extensively revised chapters include information
on fiber-optic communication systems and the ultrafast signal processing techniques
that make use of nonlinear phenomena in optical fibers.
New material focuses on the applications of highly nonlinear fibers in areas
ranging from wavelength laser tuning and nonlinear spectroscopy to biomedical
imaging and frequency metrology. Technologies such as quantum cryptography,
quantum computing, and quantum communications are also covered in a new chapter.
This book will be an ideal reference for: R&D engineers working on developing
next generation optical components; scientists involved with research on fiber
amplifiers and lasers; graduate students and researchers working in the fields
of optical communications and quantum information
