Herbert Venghaus has more than 20 years of experience in fibre optic communication with particular emphasis on optoelectronic development. He published about 100 contributions in scientific journals, edited two books with Springer-Verlag and is author of various book chapters. He is also a program committee member (including program chair) of various international conferences and reviewer of projects funded by the European Commission.
The book gives an in-depth description of the key devices of current and next generation fibre optic communication networks. In particular, the book covers devices such as semiconductor lasers, optical amplifiers, modulators, wavelength filters, and detectors but the relevant properties of optical fibres as well. The presentations include the physical principles underlying the various devices, the technologies used for the realization of the different devices, typical performance characteristics and limitations, and development trends towards more advanced components are also illustrated. Thus the scope of the book spans relevant principles, state-of-the-art implementations, the status of current research and expected future components.
