About the book
Optical fibers have played a key role in making possible the extraordinary progress in world-wide communications that has occurred in the last 30 years and are vital in enabling the proliferating use of the Internet. Currently, they are also used in other areas such as medical, industrial and defence applications.
This book aims to introduce many new technology innovations to provide a fundamental understanding of the design, operation and practical applications of optical fiber based devices and systems. It covers a broad range of topics including new design and material for optical fiber, ultra-short pulsed lasers, high power lasers, optical amplifiers, sensors, new optical devices, and communication systems.
All the contributing authors are experts in the field, and this book aims to contain their latest research. This book should be beneficial not only to researchers and postgraduate students but also to engineers to provide them with the latest updates in technology and emerging applications
