Description

The use of optoelectronics for data communication is becoming increasingly important in the 1990s. Much of the base technology needed for this field was developed by the telecommunications industry, but there are important differences which are covered in this text.
This is the first book to focus on the critical technology and application issues that are necessary to understand the optoelectronics for data communication industry, which is expected to grow exponentially during the coming years. Optoelectronics for Data Communication is an excellent reference for both researchers and engineers because it emphasizes fundamentals rather than more easily dated topics. The book focuses particular attention on practical engineering issues, making it invaluable to those who have worked or studied in the field of optoelectronics for telecommunication and are now moving to optoelectronics for data communication.

Readership

The audience includes computer, electrical and data communication engineers working in the areas of optoelectronics, optical fibers, telecommunications, and optical data communication. Also, this book is appropriate for graduate/senior undergraduate level courses in optical communications, computer engineering, and optoelectronics for data communication. These courses are taught at such schools as Dartmouth, Cornell, University of Colorado, University of Buffalo, and Williams College. The strongest interest in the book will be in the U.S. and Canada, as well as Japan.
