Description: Keiser provides an excellent introduction to the field for those enetering the optical communications arena. He progresses from the fundamental bases for electromagnetic propagation in dielectric waveguides to specific practices and principles related to implementation of optical fiber in communications systems. Although the treatment of some commonplace modulation techniques in current practice is a bit light, this volume definitely helps to get one's feet wet in the discipline. Highly recommended for students, as well as those just entering the professional arena.

The book starting from the evolution of optical communication system, the basic theory of the wave guides including the optical fibers, introduces us the whole image of the fiber communication systems, which includs the light generation, propagation, revceiving, manipulation.... The optical links and networks become the high level topics of the book. It is really a good starting book for fiber communication engineers because of its systematic organization, explicitive language.
