Optical Signal Degradation
1010606Optical Signal DegradationThe authors decided to collect a slew of rules, in a single chapter, devoted to the degradation of the optical signal. Many of these are fiber related as they deal with the propagation of light down a long fiber. These rules deal with the purely optical effects of dispersion, four-wave mixing, and other nonlinear effects that occur when sending an optical pulse down a length of fiber. Thus, these rules do not address the important issue of amplitude noise generation, which is covered in Chap. 8. The…
