This course provides the foundation essential to developing, debugging, characterizing, and manufacturing cutting edge optic fiber components and networks. Based on the science that enables the technology, the course provides an accurate intuitive grasp of fiber optics. The passive network components, like filters, multiplexers/demultiplexers, couplers, isolators, etc, are all based on the concepts of coherence and interference described with examples like the behavior of waves in a pond. For active devices like transmitters, modulators, receivers, and amplifiers, atomic transitions – spontaneous emission, stimulated emission, Raman scattering and absorption – are presented in a conceptual way that is simple but accurate. The problems caused by chromatic and Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) are described by showing light shining through a prism, on the one hand, and through sunglasses, on the other. In every example, components are put in the context of a wide area Dense Wavelength Division Multiplex (DWDM) network.
