Microwave Approach to Highly-Irregular Fiber Optics (Wiley Series in Microwave & Optical Engineering)by Huang Hung Chia
Synopses & Reviews
Viable new solutions to some of the most daunting problems in highly irregular fiber optics
This comprehensive, self-contained volume addresses a wide range of special fiber-optics problems, most of which are treated for the first time. A particular focus of the book is circular light transmission, which has not yet received sufficient attention compared with the development of linear light transmission.
Also treated in detail are spun low birefringent fiber, twist-induced circular birefringence, elliptically birefringent fiber, and the intriguing subject of polarization transformations. The analytic method adopted consistently in the book is the "initial-value problem approach" with the aid of the "method of diagonalization" and "asymptotic approximations."
Application-oriented, rather than purely theoretical, Microwave Approach to Highly Irregular Fiber Optics provides a physical and intuitive description of each major topic prior to the mathematical development that follows. Moreover, most major analytic solutions are discussed in view of their immediate or potentially far-reaching applications. The patented invention of the author has been integrated into the text. The book provides a valuable working resource for fiber-optics researchers and is also designed as a text for graduates and senior undergraduates in fiber optics and related engineering disciplines.
