Most of the material in this volume is new. The first three chapters deal with three important fiber-optic components--fiber-based gratings, couplers, and interferometers--that serve as the building blocks of lightwave technology. In view of the enormous impact of rare-earth-doped fibers, amplifiers and lasers made by using such fibers are covered in Chapters 4 and 5. The last three chapters describe important applications of nonlinear fiber optics and are devoted to pulse-compression techniques, fiber-optic communication systems, and soliton-based transmission schemes....
In the last two years, optical networking has risen into the public consciousness
in many different ways. It has become the next great technological
thing — businesses want it, service providers want to sell it, device
manufacturers want to provide equipment, and component manufacturers
are scrambling to supply pieces and parts to all of them. At the time of
this writing, an 18-month backlog on optical fiber and some optical amplifiers
exists because of the enormous and unanticipated demand for highbandwidth

Optical fibers, an important and promising material, have been the subject of intensive
research and development due to their many scientific and practical applications. They
are designed to guide light along its length by confining as much light as possible in
its core. The interaction between the propagating light with the fiber material is the
foundation of the development of various applications such as optical amplifiers, fiber
lasers, sensors etc.
